Meet your Guide

After 25 years teaching and researching at the University of Kent, 40 years exploring the First World War battlefields, and a lifetime fascinated by history, I have set up Connelly Contours to share what I have learned about the lingering imprint of history on landscape and place, and how understanding this better can unlock pathways to the past. Whether I’m guiding a bespoke battlefield tour, giving a talk, leading a London walk, or undertaking family war service research, I am passionate about sharing my excitement of encountering the past in the present, and making history accessible and engaging for everyone.
