History Detectives

History rediscovered in an engaging, entertaining and personal entertainment show! In History Detectives, treasured objects valued by our viewers lead us on a journey of exploration, illuminating significant events from our past. Using the full range of historical research techniques from genealogy to archaeology, our team of History Detectives explore both the immediate story of the items presented to them and the broader historical context : the bottle found behind a Suffolk fireplace leads us to our witch-torturing past; an old toolbox reveals the extraordinary story of Britain’s motoring heritage; and the letter that sparks a hunt for Bonnie Prince Charlie’s missing gold. Our detectives are archaeologist Neil Oliver (Coast,) industrial restoration expert Claire Barratt, and Dr Jeevan Deol, international historian and heritage consultant.
