Organised jointly by the publishers Longman and History Today, the award is designed to foster a wider understanding of (and enthusiasm for) history.
The winning book will have contributed significantly to making its subject accessible and rewarding to the general reader of history, while displaying innovative research and interpretation in their field.

Those six books are:
- The Social Universe of the English Bible, Naomi Tadmor
- The Rule of Moderation, Ethan H. Shagan
- Children in the Roman Empire, Christian Laes
- Sacred Violence, Brent D. Shaw
- Evening's Empire, Craig Koslofsky
