Personal Histories

Senior scientists share their memories, life stories and past experiences.

The Personal Histories Project is an on-going, educational, oral-history, team research initiative spearheaded by Pamela Jane Smith, at the University of Cambridge, in which senior scientists are invited to share their memories, life stories and past experiences. Through their personal recollections, we may better understand the development of twentieth-century science. Featured in the 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 films are, among others, Colin Renfrew, Mike Schiffer, Meg Conkey, Henrietta Moore, Richard Bradley, Chris Stringer, Meave Leakey and David Attenborough.
