Students undertake both assessed work and independent research in the historical issues and controversies that interest them most. The core of the programme consists of dedicated research skills training on a wide range of sources, methods and disciplines, including architecture, material culture, archaeology, and literature. The IHR is a centre for historians from all over the world to meet, research and discuss ideas. It is home to the UK’s largest programme of history seminars, covering the whole range of historical enquiry, which MRes students are encouraged to attend. The IHR also houses its own dedicated library of more than 180,000 volumes and periodicals.
