The Returning Soldier

History of Terrorism Research Network

This network connects historians in the UK and beyond who work on aspects of historical terrorism. Its focus is conceptual: the meaning and use of terrorism have changed over time, yet history can help us to understand this contested concept, how it has changed, and the significances of these changes, for both the histories of terrorism and the societies in which it operated.

Being Young on the Home Front

One hundred years on from one of the most devastating conflicts in our history – the First World War – multiple commemorations have taken place across the country. Many have taken well-trodden paths, while many others have sought to challenge our understanding of the war and its effects.
