I’m currently studying for an MSc in Medieval Literatures & Cultures after graduating from Canterbury Christ Church University with a BA in History; I’m hoping to continue to a PhD. My undergraduate thesis was on twelfth and thirteenth century women, ‘The Scarlet Lionesses: The lives of Isabel de Clare and her daughters in thirteenth-century Britain and Ireland’, and my master’s thesis is in the planning stages. I also have a YouTube channel where I discuss literature and history (link below!).

My current specialisms include:

  • women and gender (early, high, and late medieval)
  • medicine
    • late medieval female remedies and cures
    • childbirth
  • Henry V of England
  • William Marshal and his family/life
  • high romance literature
  • Middle English
