The May 2020 issue of BBC History Revealed is on sale from 16 April, in which we’ll be journeying into the seedy underbelly of the gold rush era, thousands of people travelled to the middle of nowhere in the hope of finding gold and striking it rich.


Plus: we mark 75 years since the end of World War II by recalling the momentous week that led to wild celebrations on VE Day; attempt to crack the code of the mysterious Voynich Manuscript; keep pace with the Victorian sport of competitive walking; and wonder what might have happened if Alexander the Great hadn’t died young.
