Talks - I'm available for talks on a wide variety of subjects for one hour or more to historical societies, clubs, educational organisations and charities, women's institutes, cultural organisations and societies, and the media. My studies in historical, medicinal plants and herbs may also be of interest to gardening groups.

Research/Archives - As a qualified archivist and historian I can help with research projects or teaching or assisting  people in using archives for their own research



I've been involved with public speaking on a variety of topics for over five years, including regular appearances on radio and TV programmes.

I'm a qualified archivist and historian with a degree in history, a postgraduate degree in historical archives. I also have an interest in historical medicinal plants and herbs, such as mandrake, belladonna, wolfsbane, etc.
