Historical Interpretation & Living History

Bringing the past to life, handling and using objects just as people thousands of years ago did and having a go at a craft or activity brings way more to life in the past than any textbook.

My passion as a long-time living historian and experimental archaeologist is to learn by trying to do things the way ancient peoples did. Having worked in living history museums and spent years presenting ancient crafts like pottery, spinning and iron smelting, I've learnt that people come alive, relating to the past and the people who lived then, by having a go and seeing it for themselves!

More details coming soon.....

Bringing life back to the past, complete with the styles of the times. If you ask me I don't know why hoods and cloaks ever went out of fashion!
