The University of East Anglia (UEA) is an internationally renowned university based on an attractive campus in the historic city of Norwich and prides itself on the excellent academic, social and cultural facilities which are offered to over 15,000 students. The School of History is one of the top History departments in the UK specialising in the political, social and cultural history of Britain and Europe from the Middle Ages to the present day.

The School ranks in the top 10 departments in the UK, according to the 2014 Guardian University Guide. It offers students a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, taught by one of the largest groups of historians in the country.

The Centre of East Anglian Studies was established at UEA in 1967 to develop and encourage the study of all aspects of the archaeology and history of Norfolk, Suffolk and the adjacent areas of Lincolnshire, Essex and Cambridgeshire from prehistoric times to the present.

It has flourished as a focus for research and teaching which seeks to place the investigation of the region’s past in a comparative and international context from the North Sea and Eastern Europe to the eastern seaboard of America. It also aims to address wider issues of community and regionality, and for this reason has attracted a steady stream of visiting scholars from overseas.
