Ever wondered about the monument you pass every day? Are you curious about a place name or discovered a hidden passageway in your house? Ever thought where it all might lead? Whether you’ve a mystery of your own or hit a dead end after years of your own local historical investigating, ‘History Mysteries’ may provide the answer you’ve been looking for.
Each episode follows the story of a historical mystery, revealing our national past buried in the local present, the small detail shown in the wider context, fastidiously sorting local fact from fiction. An experienced team of sleuths – Jonathan Foyle, historian of architecture, art and culture: Miranda Krestovnikoff, a specialist in natural history; and Nick Barratt, a historian and archivist – investigate when, where and why an event occurred.
