Chickens, motorcycle gunners and graffiti

Listen in pop-out player

A new series and a team of new presenters. Tom Holland, Helen Castor and Fiona Watson share the workload as we sift through listeners' questions and research and turn to some of our leading historians for some answers.

Why would you boast about having a chicken in France, why is a motorcycle gunner wearing spurs and why should we thrilled about graffiti on a medieval church wall in rural East Anglia?

Each week, the Making History team: tackles these and many other questions; here's about the latest research and puts the Radio 4 audience at the heart of historical debate.

Producer: Nick Patrick
A Pier Production for BBC Radio 4.
