Historians for History was founded by Edward Madigan and Graham Smith in May 2015. Their initial aim was simply to respond to the promotion of what they felt was a distorted, politically-driven narrative of Britain’s historical relationship with continental Europe by Historians for Britain and other commentators. As the debate on the UK’s future in the European Union gathered steam, the blog became a forum for discussion on Britain’s place in Europe and the wider world. Since then, the site has evolved in to a storehouse of commentary on public history in the 21st century.
