Out Now – Roman Archers and Medieval Prisoners

I have articles in the new issues of Ancient Warfare and Medieval Warfare magazines! I’m very excited, as it’s the first time I’ve had articles in glossy magazines on the shelves of newsagents. I’ll probably geek out and get a photo of myself standing next to them in Smiths.

The Medieval Warfare article is on the treatment of prisoners of war during King John’s reign. The one in Ancient Warfare is on Roman archery. These are both relatively obscure subjects that shed light on the society around them and how people viewed and treated each other. I’m particularly proud of the medieval piece, which draws on research I did as a postgrad and covers a subject I find endlessly¬†fascinating.

If you enjoy history then you can order the magazines here and here.
