My teaching and research interests lie in the history of Western Europe (especially England and Germany) in the early and high Middle Ages. To date my work has focused on themes of kingship and governance with an emphasis on the role of ritual and symbolic display. I have just finished writing a new biography of King Æthelred 'the Unready', which will be published by the Yale Univeristy Press this autumn. Future projects include a study of forgery and historical memory in western Europe at the turn of the first millennium and an investigation of diploma production and political practice in Ottonian-Salian Germany.
