About Me

I am an historian, researcher re-enactor, and writer based in Edinburgh where she works as Secretary and Archivist for the Stewart Society.
I am interested in the period from the Wars of the Roses to the Jacobite Risings, and is actively involved in the interpretation, promotion and protection of Scottish battlefields as a trustee of the Scottish Battlefield Trust. I have spent over 20 years developing her understanding and knowledge of the clothes and material culture of the past.   I used much of this knowledge to write Better is the Proud Plaid about the clothing, weapons and accoutrements of the Jacobite Army of ’45
