Britain’s Treasures

TITANIC BELFAST Northern Ireland

Belfast’s shipyards have constructed hundreds of vessels since the 17th century but one ship stands out from them all – RMS Titanic. Built between 1909 and 1911 at the Harland & Wolff shipyard on Queen’s Island, the luxurious Titanic was, at the time, the largest passenger ocean liner the world had ever seen – the jewel of the White Star Line’s fleet.

The aluminium-clad building is a notable structure on the Belfast skyline

About BBC History Revealed Magazine

Few legends from ancient history have continued to hold us in such thrall as that of the fall of Troy, the epic tale of love and loss; gods and mortals; treachery and truth. But how much of the story is actually true? Michael Scott weighs up the reality and fiction of probably the most famous of Ancient Greek myths. Plus: Ten quirkiest royal traditions, the secrets of the relics in Ancient Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun’s tomb, the Queen who took on the British in the 1857 Indian Rebellion, escapes over (and under) the Berlin Wall, and more.
