History

About us

Since the society was established, we have dedicated ourselves to all your social and academic needs through our range of social events and opportunities to enrich your love of history. This includes talks with academics, historical socials and activities, as well as the chance to write for our monthly magazine called Historia!

Our main aim is to create an environment for anyone who has an interest in history, and would like to explore it in a more casual setting. So whether you study history as a degree or are looking for people who share your love of Horrible Histories, look no further!
