Digital Adventures in the History of Travel and Migration.

This workshop is open to everybody. For more information see the programme

Welcome to the World of Ola Nordmann and travel with him on the journey of a lifetime! Share the extraordinary life-changing experience of leaving the safety and familiarity of home in the mountains of western Norway and travelling on foot, by train and by ship into the unknown and a new life in America.

You can be part of this journey. Did your ancestors make the journey with Ola? Do you have stories, images or recordings you can share with your fellow travellers in this virtual world? Only by coming together on this journey can we really experience and understand our history, our heritage and the reality of that amazing journey to the Promised Land.
