Biography:

I am an independent historian and have been giving illustrated talks in Sussex (sometimes nipping into Surrey) for 30 years. I have a PhD in early-modern Sussex inn and tavern history. My MA dissertation is about Elizabethan courtier Sir Thomas Sherley of Wiston House (West Sussex). I worked as Archivist at Lancing College, also teaching local history and palaeography in adult education at the University of Sussex. I am a member of the Wealden Buildings Study Group, and am particularly interested in the ritual protection of the home. I speak on a variety of subjects connected with Sussex and the South-East, some talks covering other parts of England - see twenty two talks on my website - www.sussexhistorytalks.co.uk - I have recently started doing ZOOM talks (listed below, with others to follow) and can also set up a session if needed, though would prefer a group to organise if possible.

Due to my interest in and knowledge of inns, taverns and alehouses and all manner of drinking establishments in England, I have been in more pubs than most people - mainly for research purposes, of course.
