Mobility in Your Family History
Presenter – Dr. Mike Haynes
Human beings are always restless. Throughout history we have moved in different ways. We can migrate to live in different places. But mobility is something different. It is about our journeys to work, to school, the trips to the shops, our holidays. Mobility takes us from our homes and back again. This talk is about how this mobility has changed over the last centuries – the first railway trips our ancestors took, their travel to work, their holidays. Who was the first to have a cycle, a driving licence, a car. And when did we first take to the air?
