September issue out now


The latest issue of BBC History Magazine is now on sale. In our new-look edition, George Goodwin describes the moment Scottish and English armies clashed at Flodden Field in 1513. 


Elsewhere in the magazine, Marisa Linton considers ‘man of terror’ Maximilien Robespierre.

The September issue also features Deborah Thorpe, who tells how to send a letter in medieval England.

Meanwhile a panel of speakers reflect on the big questions relating to the battle of Waterloo.

The September issue also features Richard Sugg, who considers whether there is any truth in medieval reports of vampire attacks.

Plus, Helen Berry celebrates anti-suffragette mountaineer Gertrude Bell, who in the last years of her life became the first director of antiquities in Iraq.
