Will Parkinson

An avid fan of all things history from an early age, I transitioned from tormenting my parents with facts from Horrible Histories to tormenting them with facts from my university studies. Following my graduation I spent time as a guide for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission in Ypres, and as an English language assistant at a school in Andorra.

I am currently back in the UK and working towards a Masters in Global History at the University of Sheffield. This has involved a work placement with Mr Straw’s House in Worksop, where I helped produce display pieces for an exhibition on the history of the National Trust.
