Ian Mortimer

19 April 2013

Ian Mortimer, author of The Time Traveller's Guide to Elizabethan England, will give a talk at The National Archives on Tuesday 14 May at 14:00 as part of our Writer of the Month series.

Ian started his career as a poet, then qualified as an archivist and later became a historian and a novelist. Among the eight history books he has published to date are the two bestselling Time Traveller's Guides: the medieval one has now sold almost 200,000 copies in the UK and the Elizabethan one, which reached number five on the Sunday Times non-fiction top ten, is about to become a BBC2 series. He also is a keen advocate of the public importance of history.

The talk is free to attend, but please email writerofthemonth@nationalarchives.gsi.gov.uk to reserve your place.

'Writer of the Month' is a series of free talks, in which each month a high profile author will share their experiences of using original records in their writing. See the full schedule on our writer of the month page or find out more detail on our events pages.
