I live in the North East of England and have had a passion for history and archaeology all my adult life. Originally I trained as a Solicitor, and during my law degree I enjoyed a sideline in legal history. Various jobs followed, including researcher for a local museum, public sector audit work and finally now running my own successful scuba diving business both on-line and in a bricks and mortar store. During a career break a return to University was possible where I studied Archaeology, and I feel this hands on discipline sits nicely alongside more traditional historical document based research. I am never happier then when I am stood in a castle wondering what when and why and trying to unlock the secrets in the stones.
