Below are a selection of courses that we are running, based on the subject of the course you were looking for:

  • The Villages of West Oxford
    This course will examine the villages to the west of the River Thames that have been absobed into the City of Oxford. Class meetings will alternate with field trips to the study villages.
  • The Victorian Village School
    A practical day school on the village school in the nineteenth century and its records. Workshop sessions will provide opportunities for students to investigate Victorian schools for themselves using documents in the Berkshire Record Office.
  • The Making of a Modern Town: Reading 1945 - 2014
    Reading in the 21st century is a very different town to the one that emerged following the years of post war austerity. It quickly shed much of its Victorian character and entered a period of transition before ambitious plans created the town of today.
  • Enclosure and the landscape
    We shall be looking at how the enclosure of vast swathes of the countryside from the 16th century to the 19th transformed and tidied up the landscape, increasing private property at the expense of common rights.
  • The Politics of the English People, 1500-1700
    Some of the most exciting historical work of recent years has drastically rethought the political history of the Tudors and Stuarts.
