BBC History Revealed brings the past to life for everyone. It’s an action-packed, image-rich magazine with zero stuffiness, jam-packed with facts, features and historical fun.

Each issue, we take a look at some of the big stories from history – from the World Wars and the wives of Henry VIII to  the destruction of Pompeii  – telling you everything you need to know about the subject.

We also explore the lives of the ‘big names’ in history such as Gandhi and Einstein, go adventuring with explorers like Cook and Columbus, and march with Greek warriors to find out how wars were really fought.

If you enjoy finding out how things happened, love a good story, want to revel in stunning images from the past, or lap up trivia and facts, then BBC History Revealed is the magazine for you.
