Profile summary

Professional biography

I completed my PhD on 'Calais under Tudor Rule, 1485-1547' in 1997 and worked on the AHRC-funded project 'Warfare and State Formation in England and the Habsburg Netherlands, 1477-1559' before joining the 1422-1460 section of the History of Parliament Trust.

I have previously held positions at the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University where I took a particular interest in programme and module design, developing a interdisciplinary BA programme in Medieval and Early Modern Studies.

Research interests

I am a historian of late medieval and Renaissance Britain and Western Europe. I am particularly interested in the development of the state and especially the role of war and fiscal policy in that process. I have also worked extensively on the political culture of fifteenth-century England, especially the political struggles known to us as the Wars of the Roses.

My publications include:

The History of Parliament: The Commons 1422-1460, ed. Linda Clark, 5 vols. (Cambridge University Press, 2020)

Henry VI (Routledge, 2015)

A Short History of the Wars of the Roses (IB Tauris, 2013)

The Calais Garrison: War and Military Service in England, 1436-1558 (Boydell & Brewer, 2008)
