Being an Historian

Our historians use knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world gained through the enquiries. They are curious to know more about the past and ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. Being an historian helps to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
