Bloomsbury Project

The Bloomsbury Project is investigating the growth of Bloomsbury in the 19th century from mostly undeveloped land at the beginning to Britain's centre of progressive education, charities, cutting-edge medicine and research by the end.

In this video, project director Prof Rosemary Ashton and researcher Dr Deborah Colville provide insight into a few of the characters and places that made Bloomsbury a cradle of forward-thinking education, following the establishment of UCL in 1826.
