Rebecca Higham is starting her second year studying History at Loughborough University. This blog post accounts for an essay of hers, which explores ‘the Sudan campaign and why it caused, what can only be described as, a sensation in the late Victorian era’.

Rebecca highlights the impact of her studies at Loughborough on her knowledge of historical and cultural events: “The lecture content gave me a wider understanding of the British Empire and British society in the late 19th century”.
