Making History
Radio 4

“Tom Holland is joined in the studio by Professor David Abulafia from the University of Cambridge and Professor Justin Champion from Royal Holloway University of London.

“David Abulafia leads a new pressure group of historians, called Historians for Britain, who believe that the UK is better out of the EU. Justin Champion, on the other hand, is part of a loose coalition of historians called Historians for History who argue that Britain’s history is a European one. But, how can history help inform the forthcoming referendum?”
