Fellow of the Royal Historical Society

I have just learnt that on the 9th May, a meeting of the Council of the Royal Historical Society elected me a fellow. Fellows are usually expected to have published a monograph that makes a significant contribution to historical studies. The Royal Historical Society is the oldest professional body for historians in Britain and was founded in 1868; it speaks up on heritage issues and matters relating to historical education. It is a great honour to be elected to this distinguished body and I look forward to being a part of the Society and its work. I am very grateful to Professor Peter Marshall for supporting my candidacy.
