Tom Holland is joined by Professor Ted Cowan from the University of Glasgow and Dr Richard Partington from the University of Cambridge.

As the debate about independence hots up, Fiona Watson is in Edinburgh to look at Scotland's most famous document, the Declaration of Arbroath which some look back on as a 14th century precursor to next years' referendum.

Listeners have their say on the teaching of history in our schools and Dr Graham Rowe shows us some gates in Brighton which are all that is left of the city's zoo - one of the earliest in Britain.
