Research Interests

My research focuses on the Central Middle Ages in England and France, c.1000–1300, the North Sea world, and maritime history.  Specific interests currently include the history of wreck law in England over the Middle Ages; the medieval history of the 'English navy'; maritime fishing and trade; port development; and the exploitation of coastal resources by coastal communities, lords, and the king.
