About me

Member of the HNS since at least 1999, and helped organise the very first HNS Conference in London in 2001, with Sarah Cuthbertson – we proved it could be done!

I often review books and write articles for the HNR. Interested in novels set in the 5th-6th century. A while back, I wrote an article about Rosemary Sutcliff for the HNS and it can now be found at: http://blueremembered.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/historical-novel-society-article-for.html

I am an archaeologist specialising in finds.
