Take a tour of the gallery exhibitions and collections delivered in British Sign Language.
Inspired by the recent exhibition In Translation: Women, Migration and Britishness Empire Marketing Board Posters, 1926-1933, this tour takes a closer look at the exotic animals, tea & coffee, fruit and wood that were introduced to Britain whilst its Empire expanded. It also takes a look at the migration of labour within Victorian Britain and 18th & 19th centuries' ideas and ideals crossing the English Channel.
