Tripos papers

This section provides information and guidance about the papers offered in Parts I and II of the Historical Tripos, including course guides and reading lists.


Many Tripos papers are supported by a dedicated web-site where you will find lecture hand-outs and other materials to support learning. These are accessed via CamTools.

Access is restricted to students taking the papers.

For Part I papers 2-24, enrolment is organised by the Faculty on your behalf at the start of the academic year.  However, if you are taking a paper but find you have not been enrolled on its CamTools site by week 2 of Michaelmas Term you should email the paper convenor.

The name of the paper convenor, or CamTools contact if different, can be found on the webpage for each individual paper.

Some Part II papers and Part I Themes and Sources options are also supported by CamTools sites.  Students taking those papers will be enrolled by the paper convenor.
