Delighted to announce that I have just signed a new publishing deal with Pen and Sword Books. The title of said new tome is 'Symbols of Mortality' and it will examine a variety of burial grounds and associated ideas of mortality. Such beauties will include Anglo-Saxon execution cemeteries, plague pits, charnels, Memento Mori, Egyptomania and much, much more. Oh, and did I mention there would be skulls, plenty of skulls. Further details to follow.
