The Writing of History

The Writing of History

The study of how history is written is one of the core research areas for our ancient historians, classicists and historians.

We research various aspects of ancient historiography. We look at the links between the writing of history and political debate in cases ranging from:

  • ancient Greece and Rome
  • early modern Britain
  • contemporary Europe and America
