Welcome to the research pages of the School of History, Welsh History and Archaeology. We have a long and distinguished history going back to the foundation of Bangor University in 1884; Archaeology began in 1960. In the last RAE (2008), members of the School of History, Welsh History and Archaeology achieved 15% at the top 4* level and 35% at the 3* level.


The key research strengths are in The History of Wales, Welsh and ‘Celtic’ Archaeology, Medieval and Early Modern History and Modern and Contemporary History and Heritage. We have strong partnerships and collaborations with other academics at Bangor, across the UK and internationally. Our research has led to significant links with Welsh archaeological and heritage organisations, other institutions and communities. Our research also has a wider impact. We have an important contribution to make in the life of Wales, the UK and internationally.

To see what we do, have a look at our research projects, recent publications, knowledge transfer projects, conferences, journal and editorial boards and postgraduate degrees and opportunities.

We have a thriving and friendly research culture with research seminar series in both History and Archaeology, as well as a seminar series associated with the Institute for the Study of Welsh Estates and cross-disciplinary, pan-Wales research seminars organized by the Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies.
