I'm a medieval historian at St John's College, Oxford. I'm also Mummy to a wonderful little boy. I started this blog on my return to work after maternity leave, in order to remind myself of the importance of studying history. My aim is to use the challenges and dilemmas of the past to throw critical light on the present.

(The child stops crying when you give it what it wants) - I like the idea of medieval mothers dealing with toddler tantrums.
