My research interests range across a wide variety of topics related to daily life in rural communities. I have published on topics ranging from the rural land market to peasant diets, gender, the position of peasant women, as well as popular protest. My most recent publication is a book on rural childhood in medieval England.
My current project is the completion of a book on a coastal, semi urban and rural manor in Norfolk. ‘Living by the sea’.
My plan is to follow this with a study on the peasant societies of marshland Stedingen in northern Germany, who were suppressed by means of a crusade.
