Applications for research on any aspect of the history of Wales from the post-Roman period to the present are particularly welcomed.

However, students wishing to work on other aspects of medieval, early modern and modern history are also encouraged to apply, as the School offers expertise ranging from Norman history through political and religious identities in early modern Britain to twentieth-century urban, American and colonial history. Information on staff and their research interests is available at: http://www.bangor.ac.uk/history/about_the_school/staff/index.php.en?catid=&subid=3800
