About

Hi! Welcome to the personal website and blog of Dr Caitlin Green. I'm a historian and writer whose professional interests lie in the history, archaeology, place-names and literature of late Roman and early medieval Britain. Up until recently I was engaged in research at the University of Oxford and have written a number of books, articles and various other things over the years; I'm currently a tutor & lecturer at the University of Cambridge, Institute of Continuing Education. I've also appeared on local and national TV and radio, including BBC One's The One Show, and have given lectures, talks and seminars on a range of historical topics to a wide variety of audiences, both academic and lay.

Although my main academic research foci and publications are dealt with elsewhere on this site and on my Cambridge and Academia.edu pages, this blog will feature posts on these and other topics that I'm currently working on, including drafts of papers, ideas and similar. These posts are usually identifiable by the presence of footnotes; you're free to cite these drafts if they are of interest, and are reminded that academic blogs are indeed citable under most citation systems. In addition, the current site also houses posts relating to my personal interests, including landscape and coastal history, early literature and legends, and the history, archaeology, place-names and legends of Lincolnshire.

If you want to contact me, feel free to email me via caitlin at caitlingreen.org; I'm also on Twitter as @caitlinrgreen, which is probably by far the easiest method. You can read my Cambridge ICE staff page here.
