On Identity: Festival of Ideas 2014

On Identity

The history of Mill Road, Cambridge is based on migration from local villages, other towns and, more recently, from other countries.

On 23 October 2014 the Mill Road History Project held an evening of presentations and discussions on the theme of identity.  The event took place at the Museum of Cambridge as part of the Cambridge Festival of Ideas 2014.

The following short item, by Hermes A. Contreras, was filmed at the event.
