Research
My background is in Linguistics and my PhD research was on Old English and Anglo-Saxon manuscripts. I specialise in linguistics, medieval history, place-names, and the history of education, the book and the printed word.

Writing
I am interested in making research and academic topics exciting, accessible and fun for any audience. Often with capital letters. Always with enthusiasm.

I write on medieval history and the history of English for online and print magazines and newspapers.

Consulting
I am currently the historical language consultant for the History Channel/MGM drama, Vikings, and have provided expert advice for history books, radio, and comedy shows.
