Teaching

I have a considerable amount of teaching experience, and have devised and delivered lectures, courses, workshops and fieldtrips for large numbers of undergraduates,  postgraduates, adult learners and young people. Between 2003 and 2007 I taught extensively in the University of East Anglia’s School of History, and from 2008 until 2010 I held a teaching fellowship in UEA’s School of World Art Studies and Museology. Since 2001, I have taught courses on a range of historical and archaeological subjects for adult learners in the School of Education and Lifelong Learning, UEA and for the Institute of Continuing Education at the University of Cambridge. I also teach dayschools for Wuffing Education and have lectured for the Workers’ Educational AssociationUniversity of the Third Age and a range of local societies.
