BBC History Magazine is Britain’s best-selling history magazine, helping you bring Britain’s and the world’s rich past to life.

Each month we assemble leading experts to explore a wide range of British and international historical topics – from ancient civilisations to the two world wars. Our historians tackle the key events and personalities of the past, as well as shining a light on lesser-known areas and explaining how the latest research changes our understanding.

Every issue also contains a comprehensive reviews section, inspiring ideas for heritage visits, breaking history news and the historical background behind current events.
