BBC History Magazine Items

From History Extra, the website of BBC History Magazine, comes an article 10 things you (probably) didn’t know about First World War uniforms. Not much extraordinary, but interesting.

They are also trialling a new audio version of BBC History Magazine, allowing you to listen to many of the articles featured in the July issue. You can download it for free by registering.
"Included in this audio edition is a feature where several leading experts tackle the biggest questions about the medieval Black Death. Meanwhile, Peter H Hansen describes the 19th-century mountaineering tragedy at the Matterhorn. Elsewhere in the audio edition, Frank McLynn considers whether Genghis Khan deserves his reputation as a monster, and James Holland offers a fresh perspective on the events of the 1940 battle of Britain."
