Public engagement

I enjoy sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm with a wider audience. I have spoken to a variety of local groups, including the Exeter branch of the Historical Association, the Exeter Cathedral, the Boniface Link Group (Crediton) and the South West Trust. My AHRC-funded project on 'Forging Memory: Falsified Documents and Institutional History in Europe, c. 970-1020' will see these contacts expand, and will be capped off with an exhbition at the local Cathedral (provisionally: May 2019).

This coming year, I am due to speak at the Malmesbury History Society (7 Oct.), at the Heffers Medieval Festival (18 Nov.) and to give the Lyon Lectures at Harrow School (20-21 Feb.).
