The Faculty of History at the University of Oxford organises that institution's teaching and research in modern history. Medieval and Modern History has been taught at Oxford for longer than at virtually any other University,[1] and the first Regius Professor of Modern History was appointed in 1724. The Faculty is part of the Humanities Division, and has been based at the former City of Oxford High School for Boys on George Street, Oxford since the summer of 2007, while the department's Library was removed from the former Indian Institute on Catte Street to the main Bodleian buildings at the start of 2013.[2]
