I am Elizabeth Meg Wilson, aspiring writer and recent graduate of a Medieval Studies MA in the North East of England (howay the lads). I specialised in Anglo-Saxon ecclesiastical history, Latin and fifteenth century magic, just the thing for a job in the heritage or “transferable skills” sectors of the job market. This is my blog full of the wanderings of my mind – plenty of medieval and heritage-related musing, things I’ve observed and feel are worth writing about, short stories and perhaps a bit of feminism or left-wing-ed-ness, depending on how angry or relaxed I’m feeling. I also like lists, so there’ll be a few of them, too. Basically I’m providing a distraction and procrastination tool suitable for most internet users.
I’ve written a few articles for culturised.co.uk. Give them a look for alternative academia articles and the lowdown on recent cultural events.
“Scranshums” is an old Northumbrian word for bits and pieces of broken biscuits, crisps or chips. I like all of these things, but preferably in un-broken form.
