About this author

I was born on the Isle of Wight and after attending school there, I trained to be a teacher in Birmingham. After a career in education both in UK and in Europe, I now have time to write about things which fascinate me, and foremost among my many interests is history. I like to tell stories about ordinary people who get caught up in historical events and thereby portray the lives of characters both real and fictional.

union jack - scottish flagLike so much else in English history, it all started because there was no obvious heir to the English throne. When the unmarried Elizabeth I died in 1603, there was no one in England to inherit the crown. The most legitimate claimant was King James VI of Scotland. He formed a union of the British and Scottish crowns and moved to London. In fact he only visited Scotland again once in his life.

This was an unusual mix of a detective story and a semi academic explanation of the archeology involved. It works reasonably well, and I found the book very readable.the photographs were very good and helpful in understanding the work.
