The Wolfson History Prizes, which were established in 1972, are awarded annually to promote and encourage standards of excellence in the writing of history for the general public. Prizes are given

mostrar mais annually, usually for two exceptional works published during the year, with an occasional oeuvre prize, a general award for an individual's distinguished contribution to the writing of history.

The shortlist started in 2017. Previously there were 1-3 winners per year and no shortlist.

Until 1987, prizes were awarded at the end of the competition year. However, subsequent prizes were awarded in the summer following the year of the books' publication. Accordingly, there is no prize listed for 1988.
