About me

Senior Lecturer in British Social History

Associate Director of the Regional History Centre, UWE

My historical research concentrates on the structuring of British local government and criminal justice in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and its impact on the administration of the law and social relations. I am particularly interested in the activities of the magistracy, and the prosecution of social protest.‚Äč

I am also consultant historian for Shire Hall historic courthouse museum in Dorset, and I am currently researching and writing about how and why we interpret criminal justice histories in heritage contexts.
