There are countless hidden threads running throughout British history that have long been forgotten or erased over time.
In her rich and absorbing book, Hidden Heritage: Rediscovering Britain’s Lost Love for the Orient, Fatima Manji unearths the many stories and treasures of the ‘Orient’, forgotten narratives connecting Britain with South and West Asia and the broad range of regions, races and religions, from Morocco and Ottoman history to the British Raj.
Through her journey across Britain exploring cultural landmarks, Fatima Manji searches for a richer and more honest story of a nation struggling with identity and the legacy of empire.
