I’m a lecturer, writer and researcher at a university in the United Kingdom, specialising in medieval studies. I am particularly interested in the Viking Age (c.800-c. 1100) and the languages and literatures of England and Scandinavia, though I also maintain interests into the later Middle Ages. I enjoy both the theory and practice of translation and this website is designed to showcase some of my amateur translations for a general audience.

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 educational outreach projects, so do get in touch if you want to consult with me on anything (see my Contact page).
