He is passionate about British military history but strongly believes that social and military history are closely interlinked and none more so than in Britain. This was emphasised by the practice of longbow archery in Medieval and Tudor times. He believes that by looking at both military and social one can get a far broader understanding of our history.
As well as working in and studying archaeology and history he volunteers at the Cheshire Military Museum transcribing First World War diaries in preparation for the Centenary 2014.
