Our collections page offers insights into different spaces in and around the colonial home. It allows you to learn more about the shared features of colonial homes in various locations. We describe and analyse these spaces within an academic framework in colonial and postcolonial history, but would also love to hear from you and the way you think about these spaces. Please feel free to leave a comment or start a discussion.
