History

Societies

Edinburgh provides an ideal environment for academic research, development and interaction.

A large and active group, The History Society hosts internationally renowned lecturers, provides study advice and publishes the student-run award-winning journal Retrospect. Social events include film and quiz nights, themed pub crawls, trips to historical sites across Edinburgh and Scotland, a Winter Ball and even a football team, ‘You’re History FC’.

Society of Antiquaries of Scotland

Outside the University, The Society of Antiquaries of Scotland holds regular lectures. Fellowship of the Society is open to anyone with an interest in history and archaeology; applications are considered in late November.
