History is a fascinating and revealing subject. Through history we can trace our own origins and the origins of our country. People who work in the role of historian are involved in discovering the past, collecting evidence of the past, organising what they find and presenting their discoveries to other people. We can all learn from history and it tells a rich and diverse story. From the way we used to live and dress to the wars we fought and the things we built, so much of our life is based on history.
History is a very popular subject to study at University and here at Manchester about 800 students are studying it.
We hope you enjoy learning about our history topics.
