About

I’m a lecturer and researcher at a university in the United Kingdom, specialising in medieval literature, sociolinguistics and translation studies. I am particularly interested in the Viking Age (c.800-c. 1100) and the language and literature of Early English and Old Norse, though I also maintain interests into the later Middle Ages. I enjoy both the theory and practice of translation and this website is mostly a home for my own amateur renderings of medieval literature.

Outside of higher education, I have provided freelance consultancy on matters of Viking Age language and culture for the Jorvik Viking Centre in York, including running workshops training their staff in “everyday” Old Norse (see link here). I recently offered Middle English translation and voice recording services for a Heritage Lottery funded project in Beverley, Yorkshire (link here).

I am always interested in providing any support I can for public heritage or outreach projects, so do get in touch if you want to consult on any matters medieval.
