Adam has always had a keen interest in medieval history, particularly borderlands and frontiers. He completed both a BA and MRes in History at the University of Hull in 2017 and 2018 respectively.

Adam’s PhD research focuses on identity in Yorkshire and Northumberland between 1066 and 1216, using baronial families as a lens through which to examine the distinct political, social, cultural and religious characteristics of these regions. The project is funded by NECAH under the supervision of Dr Colin Veach at the University of Hull and Dr Katherine Lewis at the University of Huddersfield.
