He took his first degree in Greats at Oxford, and then acquired research degrees on ancient history from Manchester and St Andrews Universities. He has taken part in some thirty excavations, and has fifteen articles published in learned journals on subjects in ancient history, especially Roman history.
Since 1984, he has also written on art history, and has produced five books on 19th century art, especially the Impressionists, and others on historical subjects. From 1985-87 he was the Founder-Chairman of the Friends of Shakespeare’s Globe, and from 2001 to 2007 was Chairman of the Alliance of Literary Societies.

|Guest speakers and other staff (whether
or not advertised in our brochures) are usually booked many months
in advance of the holiday and sometimes they become unavailable, even
at very short notice. If this happens, we will always do our best
to make suitable alternative arrangements but any such change shall
not be regarded as a major change and we cannot be held liable or
responsible in these circumstances.
