I have written 11 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 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.
The English Civil War in Bewdley, Kidderminster,
Stourbridge and Worcester
