These lectures were given by Cambridge University lecturers to sixth form students in summer 2008. They range in subject matter from the Norman Conquest to the Holocaust to the Vietnam War. Students in Cambridge attend lectures similar to these every weekday during term. They mostly attend lectures which relate to the papers they have chosen to study: modern European history, for instance, or medieval British history. More than 90 academics lecture in the Cambridge History Faculty; you may already have heard of some of them, or read their books.
The lectures here are provided in episodes, so you can watch/hear each of them in stages. They will give you a proper flavour of what attending undergraduate lectures in Cambridge is like. We hope that you find them interesting and stimulating, and, most of all, that you really enjoy them! Click on a lecture to view.
