Program Summary & Location

GroupThis four-week program includes the course HIST 401: Public History in Great Britain which focuses on the ways in which specialists interpret the past for public audiences at historic sites, structures, social institutions, and museums. This exciting historically focused program will begin and end at Winchester University, with major stops in between at Cardiff (capital of Wales), Liverpool, Edinburgh (capital of Scotland) and London. Students will also travel to Oxford, Cardiff, Liverpool, Edinburgh, and London to explore public history throughout Great Britain. 

Winchester, the ancient capital of England, is located in the South of England, not far from the coast. It is a beautiful city with a population of 60,000. Winchester boasts many fine, old buildings which remind students of its ancient past, yet it has a thriving modern cultural and commercial life. London is 65 miles away by train or bus.
