Unlock the past from ancient Egypt to the War on Terror

Global contexts. We teach and research histories from around the world, from Calcutta to Cape Town, Sarajevo to Southampton

Our staff's expertise range from the ancient world to contemporary global history, and focus upon gender history, the history of warfare, imperial history and social and political history.

We are ranked 3rd in the UK for the quality of our research (REF 2014). As well as writing new and challenging histories, our staff advise governments, the media, and cultural institutions. Southampton History research happens at the university, but goes far beyond it.

Join the debates at Southampton on our wide-ranging undergraduate degrees and stimulating post-graduate programme.
