This is the first ‘Beyond the Spectacle’ map, which documents a range of Native North American visitors to, and residents in, Britain, since 1616. By exploring this map, it is possible to get some sense of the geographic and chronological range of these visits, as well as the variety of reasons behind them.

To complete this map and the others we plan to make, we need your help.

If you have any information (stories, images, artefacts, recollections, etc.) about Native North American visitors to Britain, please do get in touch and help us put your village, town or city on one of our maps – email us at
