I have written 16 talks about people and subjects that I have a passion for.

Each talk features a multimedia projection and full period costume.....including armour for the Henry V and Richard III talks!

I like to be controversial at times, to stimulate historical thought and debate!

As a recently retired teacher, speaking is my profession and I do so with the enthusiasm of an avid historian.

In addition, I hold a Certificate of Higher Education in British Archaeology, which has helped me to probe deeper into my chosen subjects.

Choose from:

The English Civil War in Bewdley, Kidderminster, 

 Stourbridge and Worcester

(plus additions depending on the venue of the talk).


The History of Dudley Castle 1071-1933
