Africans in Early Modern London

From the Very Loose Women 2014 archive: historian and journalist Dr Miranda Kaufmann joined us live on air to discus her research into the history of Africans living in Renaissance London.

Miranda studied History at Christ Church, Oxford, where she completed her doctoral thesis on 'Africans in Britain, 1500-1640' in 2011 and has found evidence of over 360 Africans living in Renaissance Britain.

Miranda has worked with The National Trust and English Heritage; contributed to the Oxford Companion to Black British History and the Influential Black Londoners exhibition at Sutton House; and is a frequent speaker on Britain's multicultural history at events and in schools across the UK.

Her first book, 'Black Tudors', will be published in 2016.
