Dr Gavin Hughes, Archaeologist, Author & Historian

“I grew up in a small Ulster town and was educated in Belfast before going to university in Wales, where I met my wife to be. My main academic interests are aspects and eras of military history and archaeology from an Irish, Ulster and British perspective. Much of my published work concentrates on the First World War but other areas of research include warfare from the 1st Cent. BCE to 19th Cent. (including Iron Age, Medieval, Williamite, ECW/TYW, British Imperial Wars etc). I am mostly found either in libraries or tramping about damp battlefields/graveyards.”
