Local History Month Giveaway

Competition - win three great reads PLUS a local adventure this May

May is Local History Month! So, what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway of historical fiction and a local adventure.

As fans of Treasure Trails will already know, each and every one of our 1200+ Trails involves you delving into the past of the location you are exploring. You might find yourselves studying a historical monument or building, solving a clue on a plaque or information board about past people or events, or following in the footsteps of historical figures as you complete your Trail. 

On top of that, many of our Trail stories are based around a real local historical person or event, built into a fictional tale for you to solve as you discover more about your chosen location. 

To celebrate Local History Month 2022, we've picked our favourite Trail backstories to share with you. Plus, we've got hold of 10 sets of Conn Iggulden's three latest novels to give away. With the latest book not even out until 26th May, you could be one of the first people to get your hands on a copy, along with a Treasure Trails adventure of your choice!

What you could win:

There are 10 prize bundles to give away, each consisting of Conn Uggulden's last three novels plus a Treasure Trail. Conn Iggulden is an acclaimed master of the historical adventure novel, and we all love a bit of adventure here at Treasure Trails HQ! 

The Books:

The Athenian Series:

The Gates of Athens brings to life two pivotal battles in the ancient Greek world, while Protector immerses you in another epic adventure through the battlefields of ancient Greece. Both books were instant Sunday Times bestsellers. 

The Golden Age Series (NEW):

Lion is set in the 5th-century BC and is the first book in this new series where the age of myths and legends has given way to the world of men. Released on 26th May 2022, you could be one of the first to enjoy this one!

‘Iggulden tells an absolutely cracking story..." The Times, which is why we think you'll love these books. And what's more, we're throwing a Treasure Trail into the prize bundle so that you can get outdoors and have an epic adventure of your own between reads.
