The History Today Podcast: January 2012

In this month's edition of the History Today Podcast:

- Antony Lentin, who wrote about the Treaty of Versailles in the cover story of our January issue, talks about the reasons behind the treaty's difficult legacy, and about the enduring legacy of The Economic Consequences of the Peace, John Maynard Keynes' definitive book on the peace conference.

- Nicholas Mee discusses Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the medieval poem whose benefactor, and the place in which it was set, remain unknown. He explains how he went about researching the poem's mysterious origins, a subject he expands on at length in Patron's Place, also in the January issue.
