Welcome to the BBC History Magazine History Explorer, your guide to enjoying history on day trips in the UK – and on overseas breaks too. In this special issue, you’ll find inspiration for fantastic heritage visits in Britain this year, from Ruthven Barracks in the Scottish Highlands to Tintagel Castle in Cornwall. You’ll discover thousands of years of Britain’s past, with features on some of the key events and places that shaped the country’s history, from the Norman invasion to the rise of industry in the 18th century. You’ll also find out how people lived in the past, by exploring a Bronze Age settlement in East Anglia and visiting the palatial home of Queen Victoria on the Isle of Wight. If you’re venturing further afield, we’ve got a dozen history holidays to choose from – all fascinating destinations abroad, from Berlin to Bali and from Corfu to Cartagena de Indias. Each place has been recommended by a historian who loves to indulge his or her passion for history while taking some time out – and our experts share their advice on what to see and do when you get there. If you like to explore heritage on holiday, and whether you’re looking for a city break, an island in the sun or an exotic long-haul trip, you’ll find something here to enjoy. BBC History Magazine History Explorer is a compilation of articles that have appeared previously in BBC History Magazine. I hope you enjoy it.
