- History, Religion
I was born in India of mixed British and Russian parentage, and mostly brought up in England. I took degrees at Cambridge and then Oxford, and held a fellowship at Magdalen College, Oxford, before moving to Bristol University in 1981. I have remained there ever since. I started my career as a historian of early modern Britain, and remain one, but have branched out to acquire interests in the history of paganism, witchcraft and magic and of attitudes to them. I am presently at work on a study of the witch figure.
