Introduction to BBC History Magazine's History Weekends

BBC History Magazine's weekend festival is returning this autumn with two events featuring talks from over 30 of the world's leading historians and authors including Dan Jones, Michael Wood and Tracy Borman. From 6-8 October the festival will be returning to the medieval city of Winchester for its second year and then moving on to the ancient city of York from the 24-26 November.

The festival will be returning to the Hampshire town of Winchester for its second year. The ancient capital of Wessex is steeped in Anglo-Saxon and medieval history and we're delighted to have two fantastic venues again right in the centre of the town: the stunning 13th-century Great Hall which houses a famous replica of King Arthur's round table, and the Ashburton Hall at the nearby Elizabeth II court.
