About me...

As a freelance archaeological researcher I have wide experience of speaking to local history societies. My MA is in landscape archaeology, with special interests in both Standing Buildings and the Phenomenology of Landscape. I have engaged in historical and archaeological research throughout my life, with spells of excavation and academic writing.

About my Talks...

All my talks are illustrated by PowerPoint photographs. I have my own projector. Audiences need to provide a screen or pale wall for projection.

I live in Devon between Torbay and Teignmouth and am happy to travel anywhere within 30 miles to do day or evening talks


My fee is £60 if venue is within ten miles of my home.  Outside of that area, I require travelling expenses at 40p per mile.

The [unofficial] Writing on the wall: Historic graffiti, charms and protection

Based on my own long term interest in historic graffiti, and fuelled by the recent upsurge in interest, the talk explores some of the carvings and engravings made on medieval buildings as an unofficial use of the wall space, reflecting on their origins and possible functions.
