This site is home to my research into the fortifications of the 17th century, and also to the Kings Lynn under Siege (KLuS) and the Civil War Fortifications Register projects.
My latest book, The Town Well Fortified, has just been published. Click on its image for details.
Also recently published is Batter their Walls, Gates and Forts: The Proceedings of the 2022 English Civil War Fortress Symposium. This includes a chapter on King's Lynn under Siege. Click its images for details.
The Civil War Fortifications Register has been launched (see https://vauban.co.uk/civil-war-fortifications-register-(cwfr) )
Over the next year I will be giving a number of illustrated talks and lectures. The next one is:

Of National Importance: Investigating the ECW defences of King’s Lynn (West Norfolk & King's Lynn Archaeological Society)
