The Discovery Trail, recently launched to mark the start of the University’s 50th anniversary celebrations, includes 50 exhibits and objects located across the campus to celebrate the University’s history and achievements.
Brunel University London Archives have provided a number of the objects on display, which can be seen in the Eastern Gateway Building and the Library Foyer.
These celebrations mark the 50th anniversary of granting of the University Charter in 1966, however, the University's history goes back much further with our predecessor Colleges - Borough Road College (BRC), Maria Grey College, and Shoreditch College of Education. Objects from these Colleges are included in the Trail.
Objects 1-14 ‘Our History Revealed’ in the Eastern Gateway Building
This object has also been transcribed for our website here.
The O.B's War Hum and Roll of Honour also formed part of a project conducted in the Archives last year to compile a list of the BRC students and staff who died in the First World War to mark the centenary of the start of the war, which again is available on our website here.
