WATCH: Heritage Heroes at The University of Manchester

20 Apr 2015

A new series of videos about some of the greatest academic minds, educational innovators and cultural icons who have defined the University, starting with Henry Roscoe

The story of The University of Manchester is defined by some of the greatest academic minds, educational innovators and cultural icons. In a new series of videos, staff from the University tell us which of these figures are their heritage heroes, explaining their achievements and why they resonate today.

Sir Henry Enfield Roscoe (1833–1915) was a chemist and university administrator.

Markus Karlsson-Jones, Global Volunteer and Networks Officer, tells us why Roscoe is his University of Manchester heritage hero.
