We have an ongoing digitisation project here at History Today with the aim of getting our pre-1980 archives online. Although our current collection numbers over 10,000 full-length articles, there is over twice that amount waiting to be scanned and uploaded.
Many of the 20th Century's most well-known historians penned pieces for us between 1951 and 1979. Soon we'll be bringing you articles from this period by authors such as A.L. Rowse, Nancy Mitford, C.R. Boxer and Eric Hobsbawm.
For the moment, however, I've compiled a list of the best bits by some pre-eminent authors currently available in the 1980-2009 archive. Enjoy!
- David Starkey - Destruction and Renewal: An Introduction to Henry VIII
- Tristam Hunt - Environmental History: England & the Octopus
