Exploring History is run by Mark Cottle
Mark Cottle
Born in the Scilly Isles, educated at Truro School in Cornwall and a graduate of Birmingham University with a Masters Degree in late Medieval History, Mark has spent over 30 years lecturing in Anglo-Saxon, Medieval and Tudor history in further and higher education.

He started Exploring History in 2001, chiefly as a kind of personal crusade against the ever-increasing decline of medieval history in formal education. Exploring History is about bringing back a sense of the fascination with the richness, achievement and even mystery of a remarkable period in English history. Mark does this by holding Study-Breaks and Illustrated Talks to which he brings his own brand of enthusiasm, knowledge and skills as a communicator.
