I research and publish on the history of Kent and Sussex between 800AD and 1800, both for academic and general readerships. My book on Rye: a history of a Cinque Port was republished as a paperback in 2016 (The History Press) I have taught local and landscape history for 14 years at the universities of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church to mature students and undergraduates and postgraduates of conventional age. I carry out research for archaeological companies and Historic England (formerly English Heritage), and am a convenor of the Locality and Region Seminar at the Institute of Historical Research.
