Dr Marc Morris is an historian and broadcaster, specialising in the Middle Ages. He is the author of the best-selling biography of Edward I, A Great and Terrible King, and The Norman Conquest which explains with the same passion, verve and scrupulous concern for historical accuracy with which Marc approached Edward I, why the Norman Conquest was the single most important event in English history.
His latest book King John: Treachery, Tyranny and the Road to the Magna Carta (Hutchinson) offers a compelling portrait of an extraordinary king, whose reign marked a momentous turning point in the history of Britain and Europe.
Marc presented the highly acclaimed six-part series Castle for Channel 4 and wrote its accompanying book. He has also contributed to history programmes such as Time Team, as well as other shows on both television and radio. An expert on medieval monarchy and aristocracy, Marc has written numerous articles for History Today, BBC History Magazine and Heritage Today.
Marc speaks regularly to schools, historical societies and literary festivals, and also leads specialist tours of UK castles. He is a fellow of the Royal Historical Society.
