  • Britain 300-1100
  • Northumberland 1000 - 1250
  • Saints’ lives and religious history

My main research is based around the writing of Reginald of Durham and the historical and cultural context within which he was writing. I have submitted to the publishers my edition and translation of his 'Life' of St Godric of Finchale and am now beginning a similar edition of the Life of St Oswald of Northumbria.

I have taught the periods 300 to 1485 to undergraduates but my main teaching focus is on study skills such as essay writing, exam prep, work scheduling and so on. I am also engaged to a limited extent in the widening of access to Oxford for students from non-traditional backgrounds and schools.

    No publications have been listed.

I would be willing to hear from potential DPhil students regarding Religious or/and Anglo Saxon history
