Researching monarchy and coronations in BBIH

On the occasion of the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla, we created two new BBIH online reading lists focusing on the history of monarchy and coronations in Britain and Ireland, the first one covering the period up to 1485 (Medieval monarchy – 375 publications), and the second one from 1485 to the present day (Monarchy, Tudor to Windsor – 606 publications).

The lists specifically covers:

  • “Succession, royal”, a subcategory of Monarchy (within Political, administrative and legal history)
  • “Coronations”, a subcategory of Ceremonies (within Other topics)

Professor Philip Murphy and Dr Emily Ward each wrote an accompanying blog post on the IHR website:

D-Day 75th anniversary

Today, on the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, we remember the thousands of men who laid down their lives in battle in the hope that we might build a better world. While the number of veterans who saw D-Day first hand is gradually reducing, historians look to make sure that their sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Below, you can find some links to recent works on World War II indexed in the Bibliography of British and Irish History.
