Underculture & History From Below

My work is an exploration of history and culture from below, providing a platform for the under-documented. 

I investigate the history, culture, and radical ideas of peasants, pirates, slaves, sailors, beggars, smugglers, bandits, vagabonds, reivers, thieves, witches, artisans, religious heretics, jesters, fools, drovers, and weavers. I also apply an investigative lens on the idea of pilgrimage, carnival, and the cultural reformation. 

I attempt to gain an understanding of the effect pandemics, famines, enclosure acts, vagrancy laws and authoritarian reigns of terror had on lower class people, their culture and communities; and the persecution of radical and heretical movements throughout the centuries and across the world.
