Study with us
The wide-ranging collections held at Churchill Archives Centre are a valuable resource for students at all levels. Our focus is on 20th century history but we also hold material which could be used by students of the Victorian and Edwardian periods, or the history of science. Visiting students can assimilate evidence from our historical sources and assess their reliability and value. We are happy to welcome individual students pursuing projects or teachers researching material for use in the classroom. A prior appointment is required (telephone 01223 336087).
Students and teachers can also access our holdings online in Churchill Archive, The Churchill Era, Churchill: The Evidence, and Discover Churchill, websites with specially designed teaching resources (see below for further information). We also have a selection of primary sources on Churchill, Roosevelt, Stalin and the Grand Alliance, 1940-1945, organised by Professor David Reynolds (Christ's College), formerly used on a University of Cambridge course, and the Archives Centre also supports the third-year Special Subject course "Class, Party and Social Identity in England, 1914-1945" which is organised by Dr Jon Lawrence (Emmanuel College).
