‘You were never more than 10 miles from an immigrant in medieval England.’ Professor Mark Ormrod’s claim challenges preconceptions about the extent of migration during the Middle Ages and forces us to ask who, where and what were migrants doing here, and how do we know about them anyway? Andrew Payne and Ben Walsh present classroom resources, developed by teachers, for the new GCSE thematic study based on the England’s Immigrants project.
