Here we share posts about our current research projects, wider parliamentary history, highlights from our events, seminars and conferences, and future publications.
The History of Parliament’s core work lies in researching and writing series of volumes depicting Parliamentary life and proceedings throughout the past 700 years. These academically rigorous works contain detailed biographies of parliamentarians, studies of constituencies and introductory surveys. The Sections currently underway are: Commons 1422-1504, Commons 1640-1660, Commons 1832-1868, Lords 1604-29 and Lords 1715-1790. Follow the links for further information about the History of Parliament and our latest research.
All current published Commons volumes can be found in the research section at historyofparliament.org
Currently two of our Sections post independently as well as part of the main blog: the Victorian Commons and the Georgian Lords. We are developing plans for other Sections to do the same, so watch this space for your area of interest.
