LSE’s homepage looked very different in 1996, discovers LSE Library’s Daniel Payne. Find out what it looked like and read Daniel’s tips for exploring historic websites.

This archived homepage provides an insight into life at LSE in 1996, when you could find out about the newly appointed Director Anthony Giddens, buy a soup on campus for 85p, and study the LLB where three B’s at A-level were required. You can explore snapshots of LSE webpages from 1996 to the present day at the UK Web Archive.
