Exploring, Discovering, Learning

I want to make the Past, both History and Prehistory, more exciting, relevant and 'hands-on'. It's a fun place with some great stories, I want to share these with everyone.
I work with schools, museums, community groups, either at their place or outdoors in the Landscape.
I develop and deliver projects. I create resources. Exploring the Past and our shared heritage, bridging the divide and Discovering the links between these artefacts, sites or museum and Us. I try to put objects back in context, helping people Learn about the past. I use objects, both orginal and replica, costume, crafts and role play, in other words - Living History.

I'm a member of a small group of like-minded people - The Deja Crew

some of the faces of Victor the Veteran...



Well people asked so here they are,

...the Prefect likes everything his own way...

I've always had difficulty looking fierce with a wobbly helmet...
...you're not getting in here...
...or here...
It's an exciting life in the Auxilia!


...sometimes too exciting!

I don't often wear the lorica and helmet while working with school groups, some of the younger children can be a bit wary of 'that scary Roman!'  and besides they would rather try the armour and look at me wear it.
