European Review of History Podcast delves deep into the rich tapestry of Europe’s past hosted by the European Review of History – Revue européenne d’histoire is an international journal that covers European history of all centuries and disciplines.

Founded in 2004, the journal aims to create a forum for ideas across Europe, to encourage innovative research, to make diverse historiographies more accessible, and to assist the exchange of ideas among young historians.

The podcast features 6 episodes released in the 2023 Digital Histories series, aimed at broad audiences, and provides detailed narratives and engaging discussions that portray the experiences of historical figures, the impact of pivotal events, and the evolution of societal norms and values throughout time.
