Historian Dan Jones and artist Marina Amaral discuss their collaboration to retell the history of the world from 1850 to 1960 through a series of newly colourised photographs. Covering topics as diverse as the reign of Queen Victoria and the US Civil War to the Cuban Missile Crisis and beginning of the Space Age, this promises to be a rich new look at how the world has changed in the last century and a half.


Dan Jones is a best-selling historian, TV presenter and award-winning author. His books include  The Templars: The Rise and Fall of God’s Holy Warriors and The Plantagenets: The Kings Who Made England.
