You might have even seen some appear on major national and international media speaking about their research.

You could be completing a heritage placement at a regional museum, a conservation project with the National Trust, or perhaps you’d like to try your hand at digitising historical artefacts at our on-campus library. We also have an active history society. In recent years some students have taken part in theatrical early modern performances at Lancaster Castle, such as Edward III, Measure for Measure and Macbeth. You'll also be able to join events and talks at our Centre for War and Diplomacy and the Richardson Institute for Peace Studies.
