This essay aims to demonstrate the rich research perspectives offered by examining the important role of migration in the history and development of Belfast. Taking a holistic approach incorporating multidirectional aspects of migration (i.e. immigration, emigration, internal migration and return migration), the authors describe the variety of types and formats of evidence available (objects, maps, letters, interviews) and how these resources and related methodologies of investigation can be combined to yield new and important insights about Belfast history.
