Each issue captures the imagination with six regular features including:

Ancient Empires: From Ancient Egypt and the Macedonian Empire to the Jin Dynasty and the Roman Empire, discover the amazing stories behind the truths and myths that have defined our world.

World Wars: Uncover some of the most tragic and heroic true stories from the trenches of World War I, and the battlegrounds of World War II.

Heroes and Villains: Learn what made the most influential figures in history tick, from kings and queens to inventors and explorers.

Timeline: Follow the most significant dates in history in chronological order, tracking the rise and fall of empires and individuals alike.

What if: Leading historians debate how the world may have looked today if some of the key historical events had turned on their head. What would have happened if Germany had won the Battle of Britain? What if the gunpowder plot had succeeded? What if the Vikings had colonised North America?
