Bettany Hughes is made an OBE

10th June 2019

Our alumna, historian, author, and television presenter Bettany Hughes (Ancient and Modern History, 1985), has been made an OBE for services to history

Bettany paid tribute to her late father and to her former teachers, saying, “Of course I owe all this to my brilliant, diligent teachers at school and university. And to my darling dad – only just passed – who, across close on a century, always took time out to listen to the stories of others.”

Many congratulations on this achievement!
