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 recently published a new biography of King Æthelred 'the Unready', which was awarded the Longman-History Today prize for best 'scholarly but accessible' book. Future projects include a study of forgery and historical memory in western Europe at the turn of the first millennium; a popular history of the viking raids on Europe; and an investigation of diploma production and political practice in Ottonian-Salian Germany.
