I am an historian of British cultural and intellectual history and historical culture from about 1600. I am interested in how people understood and related to the past through scholarship, antiquarianism, drama, poetry, art, and architecture. This is the focus of my first book, Queen Boudica and Historical Culture in Britain: An Image of Truth, which will be published as part of the Past and Present book series by Oxford University Press in summer 2018. I am now in the very early stages of a new research project on the interdisciplinary origins of the history of ideas.
