Our aim is to provide a platform for exploring and discussing the ways in which the past shapes and informs the present, and how the study of history can enrich our civic lives.
We deliver fresh and relevant history content and pedagogy via three primary avenues: Teacher Tools and Resources, a weekly Context and Commentary newsletter, and a monthly Connected podcast.
Whether you are a student looking to deepen your understanding of the past, an educator seeking new ideas and resources for your classroom, or simply someone with an interest in history, we hope you will find something of value on our site. Thank you for visiting and we look forward to connecting with you through the study of history.
