Alumni Reunion Day is a big success!

The School of History’s second annual Alumni Reunion Day was a big success, with nearly 200 former students and staff arriving on campus on Saturday 11th October for the event.

Highlights included a tour of Canterbury Cathedral, a trip on the Kent Wheel, and the chance to have memories recorded by our History Projects team. Professor Kenneth Fincham, Head of School, gave a presentation on ‘50 Years of History at Kent: Past, Present and Future’, and a number of information stands gave details on our Gateways to the First World War Project, The Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies, The Centre for Political Economies of International Commerce, The Clergy of the Church of England Database 1540-1835, and DocExplore, a programme that creates interactive digital versions of historical manuscripts.

The day was rounded off with a lecture from Professor Grayson Ditchfield on ‘1714 – A Hanoverian anniversary’, and a drinks reception.

It was great to welcome so many former students and staff, thanks to everyone who came – hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did!
