Archives # Culture # When routes become roots: Oral History Project

Are you or do you consider to be Basque in any form of shape? Do you live / have you lived in London or any other place in the British Islands?. Would you be willing to share your personal life experiences and / or memories with us?

We are looking for Basque people of all ages and backgrounds in London and the British Islands who would be willing to have their memories and experiences recorded for an Oral History Project. If you are interested or know someone who might be we would like to hear from you.

We are currently recording the life stories of Basque people for an Oral History Project. The interviews are informal, loosely structured and conducted in people's homes unless preferred otherwise.

If you would like to become involved in this project or can lend photographs, films or related documents for copying we would like to hear from you. The material gathered will become part of the Basque Oral History Archive and the recorded interviews will form a lasting legacy of the Basque presence in London and the British Islands.
