Our research

The Centre for the History of People, Place and Community (CHPPC) fosters engaged, innovative research into placed histories across all regions and periods, from the rural to the urban and the parish to the metropolis, with an emphasis on the localised, the micro-historical, and the site-specific.

We work together with others to develop imaginative new approaches to making history, and to identify opportunities for history to make a difference in the real world today.
