Indigenous London

Thrush tells of indigenous Australian men along with other indigenous people from Canada, the USA and New Zealand, speculating on their encounters by drawing on rich and varied materials. These travellers includ chiefs, explorers, athletes, royalty, performers and children. They came to London by invitation, or motivated by curiosity, or emboldened by a desire for a better deal, or by capture and imprisonment.
