I am a heritage and science communicator, interpreter and educator. I develop, deliver, provide training and evaluate heritage and science programmes in museums, historic houses, outdoor environments and I write useful 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 prehistorian, and I like a bit of historic swordfighting too.

On this website you’ll be able to see examples of my work and musings on the world of consultancymuseums, schools, familieswriting, archaeology and biology.

There are also links to my businesses:

  • Schools Prehistory and Archaeology – I visit schools and museums as a time-traveller and create resources with a focus on what we can learn from material culture
  • 500BC – I run bushcraft and ancient skills workshops in Wendover Woods in Buckinghamshire and surrounding areas


Voluntary work includes running Aylesbury Young Archaeologist’s Club since 2007 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.
