Cryfield Grange

A Warwickshire farmhouse from its medieval foundations to the mid-twentieth century

22 November 2017 - 8 January 2018

Find out more about the local area through our current exhibition. The exhibition combines display panels with documents from the University of Warwick's own archives to tell the story of Cryfield Grange, a historic farmhouse on the university campus.

The exhibition is part of an ongoing multi-departmental project to discover more about the listed building, its grounds and historical context.

Past events:

Community Speaker Series

The Community Speakers Series offered an opportunity for community members, independent scholars, academics, and students to come together to discuss a topic of importance or interest to the local community. Each talk was accompanied by an interactive exhibition of related archival material held at the MRC.

Open Education Series

The Open Education Series was a monthly series of events organized by students at the University of Warwick on topics that have been mostly excluded or challenge the Eurocentric academic curriculum. The series utilised the resources of the MRC, a unique archive housing primary sources on modern British social, political and economic history and allowed for attendees to engage with original source material.

Archives Alive

A project that involved working with local schools to develop pupils' research skills and encourage them to engage with primary sources.
