    About

    I am a historian whose primary research focus is on naval logistics during the hundred years war and English merchant shipping and coastal communities over c.1300-c.1600. While by trade an historian, from 2009 to 2011 I was appointed Senior Researcher for National Lottery funded project that examined community responses to the use of restorative justice.

    My research centres on three key areas:

    • Late medieval naval operations and logistics

    • Medieval and Tudor maritime communities

    • Late medieval and Tudor merchant shipping
