Background

Academic activities commenced in the Department of History in 1976 following the official opening of the University of Ilorin in 1975. In the light of the tremendous upheavals in the global environment and dramatic changes in world affairs that have taken place during the last decade, History has become a very exciting and challenging field of study.
