Historians at Cardiff research and teach the histories of Britain, Europe and Asia from ancient Greece and Rome to the twentieth century, offering a chronological range that covers several millennia of history. The Department has particular strengths in social and cultural history, gender, transnationalism, warfare and the Crusades, medicine, and Wales in global contexts. Although History is the main intellectual home for staff, the School provides a multi-disciplinary environment for this research.
The Department provides research-excellent undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in a wide range of historical approaches and periods, while supporting a number of key public engagement activities in the local area.
