In the last issue of Durham First we invited you to share with us your memories of Durham. We have received some fascinating stories and a couple of common themes soon became apparent - rowing and bad weather!

Please do continue to send in your memories to or mail them to:

If you have any material from your time at Durham that you no longer need, our University archivist would be happy to consider adding such material to the archives for posterity's benefit. Material reflecting the student and less formal side of the University's history is gratefully received, such as:

  • Photographs
  • Newsletters
  • Certificates
  • Journals
  • Essays
  • Lecture notes
  • Trophies

Please contact the Editor for more details.
