I have a brief piece in this month’s History Today on the subject of Sir Walter Ralegh’s reputation in the 20th century. It is part of the magazine’s regular ‘From the Archives’ feature, and is a response to an excellent 1998 essay by Robert Lawson-Peebles titled ‘The Many Faces of Sir Walter Ralegh’, which traced Ralegh’s reputation through history. Lawson-Peebles essay can be viewed in History Today’s archives here.
My article is currently available online here – and I will post it on my blog in a couple of weeks – but of course History Today is a great magazine, so why wouldn’t you want to buy it, if you don’t already subscribe? Alternatively, subscription details are online here!
UPDATE: The article is now up on my blog here.
