I am an archaeologist and historian. I grew up in York and became very interested in the history of that city. I love looking at old maps and seeing how the area has changed, and which historical gems still survive.
I started working in archaeology on an excavation in York in the mid 1980’s, and by 2000 I had moved into the East Riding area.
Archaeological work has allowed me to excavate sites of many different periods, from Iron Age to modern, discovering items left behind by the people who lived and worked in those areas generations ago.
This work and personal research of York’s history, allows me to continue creating new talks which will be added here.
About my Talks...
My talks cover a wide range of topics within the history and archaeology subjects, and include archaeological methods, archaeological discoveries, general history of villages, towns etc, artefacts and even topics such as criminals and executions, Clifford’s Tower, female archaeologists from the 19th and 20th centuries.
Most talks are c.45mins to 1 hour in length, illustrated by powerpoint presentation, followed by a Q&A session.
Where possible I will use equipment at venue, but do have a laptop and projector, and would need white wall or screen to project onto.
My is £60 + travelling expenses which will be calculated at time of booking.
