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

...Romans at Kings Cross!

I've been digging out some images recently and since I haven't posted for almost a year, it seemed an obvious thing to do...

...post some images!

Yes it is Kings Cross Station!

Here we are, in Londinium, me and Nigel, our job, to help the Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership persuade commuters that they would rather be in Hadrian's Wall Country!

Admire the view from Hadrian’s Wall in 360

A little while ago a photographer from the Telegraph asked me if I could stand still for a minute or two.
