Welcome to the History Faculty

Oxford has one of the most long-standing history departments, which has been in existence for well over a century. The University has perhaps the largest number of scholars and teachers of history in the world and is a leader in both its teaching and its research.

The Oxford History Faculty has nearly 100 permanent University post-holders researching and teaching an extraordinary range of subjects across a broad geographical and chronological sweep, from the last days of the Roman Empire to modern Japan. Read more
