Our History Research Centre encompasses a wide range of topics and periods, from childhood in ancient Egypt to memorialisations of the Second World War, and from crusading bishops to youth cultures in modern Britain. 

Our strong engagement with the public is led by the Manchester Centre for Public History and Heritage, which builds on and expands the activities of the long-established Manchester Centre for Regional History. We are proud of the broad geographical and temporal scope of our research, which feeds directly into our teaching.
