FOR ANY PERIOD from ancient Egypt to World War II

I come complete with costume and equipment and am used to working in museum environments and with children.

I have worked at the Museum of London, the British Museum, many county museums and historic houses, and both state and private schools, as well as in France and Belgium.

I usually work alone but can arrange for joint bookings with a number of reputable colleagues whose extensive knowledge of the past matches my own.

PLEASE NOTE - Bookings for myself and colleagues are always subject to availability.
