Personal profile

Research expertise

Programme Leader - BA (Hons) Scottish History;
Co-Programme Leader - BA (Hons) Scottish History & Archaeology; History & Politics

 

My research is focused on medieval Scottish political and military history. My thesis and subsequent research have focused largely on the Second Scottish Wars of Independence (1332-1357), although I have also written about the First War of Independence, and am now expanding my research into the twelfth and thirteenth centuries as I examine the treatment of rebels and traitors in medieval Scotland. Areas of research interest within which I am happy to oversee PhD students include the above, as well as the following:

 

  • Anglo-Scottish Relations
  • The Scottish Wars of Independence
  • The Hundred Years’ War
  • Medieval Warfare and Military History
  • Chivalry and Conduct in War
  • Revolt and Rebellion in medieval Scotland and England
  • Modern Popular Culture and the Depiction of 'the medieval'

 

Teaching expertise

I joined the Centre for History in January 2009 and, in addition to being module leader for several undergraduate and postgraduate modules, am also Programme Leader for the Scottish History degree, and co-programme leader for our degrees in History & Politics, and Scottish History & Archaeology.
