I have been involved in education since 1994 and have always believed that children can work as hard as their teachers do if they can be enthused with the work in question. Being a ten-year old at heart I find that models and role play make learning immediate, memorable and real - and that is what I aim to bring to my presentations.

I have been involved in re-enactment for a number of years, with a particular interest in ancient history. I am a member of the Hoplite Association www.hoplites.org and the Roman Military Research Society www.romanarmy.net

Having worked as a carpenter in the past, I enjoy making historically accurate artefacts that I bring to schools in my presentations - well, a man's got to have a hobby!
