- Primary position:
I specialise in early modern British history, with particular research interests in the ‘British crisis' of the 1640s; witchcraft; urban society; and cultural, ethnic and religious identity in Wales and Cornwall between 1450 and 1700. My most recent book is: ‘The Black Legend of Prince Rupert's Dog: Witchcraft and Propaganda during the English Civil War' (University of Exeter Press, 2011). I have appeared on many radio and TV programmes, including ‘Who Do You Think You Are?', ‘The Great British Story: A People's History', ‘Inside Out', ‘Making History', ‘Word of Mouth' and ‘The Roots of English'. In 2012, I received a Vice-Chancellor's Teaching Award in recognition of my contribution to education at Southampton.
