History Faculty - Events

Oxford has one of the most long-standing history departments in the world, the Faculty of History, 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.

The History Faculty is very conveniently located in the heart of Oxford within easy reach of the train station and Gloucester Green bus station. It is situated on George Street, across from the Odeon cinema, and is housed in a distinctive former high school for boys set back slightly from the road.

Its location, indicated by the green building, is shown on the following map, which also shows the location of the train and bus stations. Other maps and travel instructions for reaching Oxford are available from the University of Oxford and Streetmap.
