|Rye & 1066 Country|
I am involved with archaeological studies and professionally led 'digs' in my spare time. I gained the Certificate in Practical Archaeology, (Sussex University), in 2001.
I am involved in 'green issues' and promoting countryside issues. I use the in-depth information gained in coach commentaries, slide talks and walking tours.
My interest in ethnic origins reflects a childhood spent away from Britain.
|History & Prehistory||
I aim to give well-researched information on these subjects which is also entertaining.
The history of theatre and also modern theatre are important to me. I can arrange trips to live shows, also more in depth experiences involving theatre - related buildings, back-stage visits etc.
I started a series of successful walking tours in 1992, which now include urban tours, (Rye, Hastings, Battle, Winchelsea), and footpath walks for active groups.
I live in an almost exclusively farming area. I can take people to see our farms and meet the locals.
Power point talks which include among others Roman and Mediaeval archaeology, the Mediaeval Wine trade from Bordeaux and talks on voice production.
|Stately Homes & Country Houses||
Tours which include all styles from Fishbourne Roman Palace to Modern Great Buildings.
