Dr Katherine Lack
Dr Katherine Lack originally trained as an agricultural scientist at Oxford, where she took a doctorate in 1985. Since then she has studied medieval and modern history and historical research techniques, and this diverse background has led her to explore the links between superficially different subjects. She has written on science, history and theology, and is the author of three books tracing historical journeys and their cultural background, which give an insight into life in the dark ages and medieval times.
Katherine Lack has recently been based at Birmingham University, working on a detailed study of rural life in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Herefordshire, for a doctorate investigating what motivates people to migrate. She has led tours to sites of historic and spiritual interest, and worked on several innovative projects, including as a partner in a historical and archaeological research programme with MIND. Her latest book is on civilian internment diaries from the Second World War. For more information, visit her web site at www.KatherineLack.co.uk
