Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Experts from the National Archives, London Metropolitan Archives and National Maritime Museum are on hand to help visitors discover if they have connections to the East India Company. There's also a chance to hear from historians and genealogists who have traced their own ancestors, and an interview with Amitav Ghosh, whose Booker-nominated novel 'Sea of Poppies' was partly researched at the museum. This is the closing event of the 'Traders Unpacked' series of events marking the launch of the museum's 'Traders: The East India Company and Asia' gallery.
