Elsewhere in the magazine, June Purvis investigates the death of suffragette Emily Davison at the Epsom Derby in 1913.

The June issue also features Anna Whitelock, who looks beyond the public image of Elizabeth I as an all-conquering Tudor beauty to reveal a monarch plagued with insecurities and ill health.

Also in this issue, we explore the first ascent of Mount Everest, in 1953, through the stunning photography of George Lowe.

Meanwhile, Antonia Fraser discusses the Great Reform Act and a revolution that never was.

Plus, David Priestland revisits the EP Thompson classic The Making of the English Working Class, while Andrew Jotischky examines the 12th-century monastic revolution through eight related sites.
