    At what time will your book launch take place on Thursday 12th May ?
    Will you be giving a talk about the Rookwoods ? And do you include the Norfolk branch flt 1650 ?

      The talk will start at 7.30pm. The Norfolk Rookwoods are briefly mentioned in my book but I would be very keen to know more about them. The talk will focus on the Rookwoods of Stanningfield who are the main subject of the book.

    Dear Dr Francis Young,

    I hope this finds you well. My name is Daisy and I work for our a Bristol based production company, Plimsoll Productions. We are a young and successful Bristol based television company who have created programmes for History channel, Channel 4, Channel 5, ITV and the BBC to name a few. I am PA to our Head of History, Steven Clarke, who now manages Plimsoll’s growing slate of specialist factual programmes. Steven’s previous directing credits include: the hit Channel 4 history series’ Elizabeth and Six Wives of Henry VIII. For the BBC: Empire of the Seas, The Beauty of Maps and The King & The Playwright; Channel 5’s Murder Trail and Victoria Cross Heroes. And for ITV, Battle of Britain and Great Escape: The Untold Story. He also wrote and produced the BAFTA winning factual drama, Dinosaur Hunters.

    With a historical background myself I have been doing research for some new and exciting programme ideas and came across an article about archaeologists believing that they have found the body of St Edmund. I then came across your name and was wondering if we could possibly get in touch with you this week?
    We would be very grateful to get the full story and information on when the dig will go ahead?
