My research interests include Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman and Angevin history, law and society, medieval manuscripts, and the intersection between legal, historical, and literary writing. My current project and research interests developed out of a background including an undergraduate thesis concerning the depiction of Champenois and French judicial procedure in Chrétien de Troyes’ twelfth-century romance, Le chevalier au lion, and an MA dissertation on the nature of sokerights and more generally soke in the Leges Henrici Primi. From April 2014 – March 2015, I was an intern at the British Library. My internship was in the Ancient, Medieval and Early Modern Manuscripts section of the Western Heritage Department where I assisted with the preparation of the Library’s major temporary exhibition ‘Magna Carta: Law, Liberty, Legacy’.

I develop research projects and studentships with collaborative partners in Higher Education and the wider archaeology sector for MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology), the only archaeology unit that is a UKRI Independent Research Organisation. I was previously Business Development Executive (Heritage) at the University of Leicester, developing collaborative research, consultancy, CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and contract research projects between organisations in the heritage sector and academic staff in the Schools of Archaeology & Ancient History, History, Arts, and Museum Studies.
