Very pleased to announce that I was invited to speak at this year’s BBC History Magazine’s Weekend in York. I will be talking all about how to build a medieval cathedral on the Friday evening (19th) at 5pm at the Yorkshire Museum. (more…)
After several months of keeping this very big secret, I am extremely proud to announce my next book: Heaven On Earth, an illuminating narrative of the conception and legacies of twenty of the world’s greatest cathedrals interwoven with an exploration of the lives, legends and scandals of the people who built them. Heaven On Earth will be published by Head of Zeus, and as soon as I have a confirmed release date, I will post it. I don’t want to give away too much more at this time, but if you would like an idea of what can be expected from the book, the synopsis can be found below.
Just a quick reminder that there are a few remaining tickets available for my talk on ‘Pilgrim Routes of the British Isles’ at Ripon International Festival, Tuesday 6th September, 3pm at Ripon Spa Hotel. (more…)
