Orginally form Derby, I began studying at the University of Hull in 2013 for a degree in History and Archaeology. I gained experience in both disciplines, including spending time working on the Brodsworth Community Archaeology Project during the summer of 2014. After graduating in 2016 I continued my studies at the University of Hull, undertaking a Masters Degree by research (MRes) in History, with a thesis focusing on the crusading Kings Louis IX, Frederick II and Edward I which I completed in 2017. This led me to begin studying for a Ph.D. in the IMS at the University of Leeds, titled Yorkshire and the Crusades 1095-1400.
My main areas of interest are the history of the Crusades and the history of Medieval England, escpecially the county of Yorkshire.
The thesis I am currently researching, Yorkshire and the Crusades 1095-1400, aims to show there is a signigicant link between Yorkshire and the Crusading movement during the Middle Ages.
