The aim of the month is to increase awareness of local history, promote history in general to the local community and encourage all members of the community to participate.
Activities happen across the UK and include trips, library exhibitions and local lectures. It is a great way for groups to highlight local history and for local people to get involved.
In light of this, why not check out the Library's fantastic Archives? The archive contains collections of interest to students, researchers, genealogists and local historians, including material relating to the history of the University, from its foundations in 1896 to the present day.
