I am a heritage and science communicator, interpreter and educator. I can develop, deliver, provide training and evaluate heritage and science programmes in museums, historic houses, outdoor environments and I write educational resources for children and teachers on history and science topics.
I love getting children doing hands-on activities, preferably outdoors, and getting them thinking about and investigating the past. I try to get the latest research into the resources I create and am keen to share best practice in heritage education.
I am essentially an archaeologist and historian.
On this website you’ll be able to see examples of my work and musings on the world of consultancy, museums, schools, families, writing, archaeology and biology.
Voluntary work includes running Aylesbury Young Archaeologist’s Club since 2007, teaching historic swordfighting since 2021 and recording a podcast for the Archaeology Podcast Network on fictional tales about prehistory – see all episodes on my Prehi/stories page. I’m also working slowly on gathering evidence about what people looked like in prehistory on my blog Richly Adorn’d.

I hope you are well. Just wondering whether you’ve received my email about evolution workshops? Not sure whether the email address I used is still current. Tell me if not and resend to a better email address. Thanks!

I’m enjoying your prehistories podcast from here in New Zealand – and yes, I believe we have a stone henge here too!
I used to work in the local children’s library and would like to recommend a trilogy aimed at 10 year old to young adult, by NZ author Vince Ford, called Chronicles of Stone. Set in prehistoric times it follows the perilous journey of twins Trei and Souk. Trei is wanting to learn the secret of a spear thrower to save his people from starvation, and Souk is following an irresistible spiritual calling. I have heard him address a roomful of librarians once – so enthusiastic and an excellent speaker. Hope you like it.
