About Me

Hi and thank you for visiting my site. I have been obsessed with history for as long as I can remember. In 2007 I completed my History degree. I then went on to study an MA in history. In 2016, I was awarded a PhD in history. The focus of my research was medieval history with a focus on gender. I have been working as a university lecturer ever since I completed my PhD.

Manchistorian stemmed from my desire to spread history to a much wider audience than the seminar room. I have also run another successful blog since 2017 so creating another blog was a very exciting prospect!

I really hope you find this blog useful as the site expands. If you have any suggestions for any posts you’d like to see, then please get in touch!
