I remember last term someone (one of the John's I think) posted a file of posters of famous, modern people with history degrees, such as Ali G. Have tried a search and can't find it. :( Can anyone give me a hand here please? I would like to print some out for my open evening next week. (slightly early I know!)

Thanks in advance,
Catherine

It was our open day and evening today, and these posters went down really well - thankyou to Russell for producing them, and to the rest of you for finding them for me. I really recommend others use them. All night people were saying 'ooh - i didn't know he had a history degree...' cheers! :beer:

Some really nice points raised here - I'll try to update my little pack when I get the chance (always too many things to do!!!)

I wish he had as well. Especially 20th Century British History.

Didn't he mean " I hope to be studied in History at University."

Thinking is SO important Baldrick. What do YOU think?
I think thinking is SO important, my Lord.

I wish he'd have studied "Peace Studies"
