Research Themes

Highlights include editing a ninth-century Breton saint’s life, and rethinking the migration from Britain that created Brittany in the ‘Dark Ages’.

From September 2015 to August 2019, I will be a Research Associate on a Leverhulme Trust-funded project, ‘Brittany and the Atlantic Archipelago, A.D. 450-1200’. The other members of the project team are Dr Fiona Edmonds (Project Co-ordinator) and Professor Paul Russell, both of the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic.


I lecture on Celtic Britain in the early Middle Ages in the History Faculty and in the Anglo Saxon Norse & Celtic department when required. I supervise undergraduates and the occasional M.Phil student on the history of Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and Northern Britain between the end of the Roman Empire and the central Middle Ages.
