Kev is digital section editor of HistoryExtra.com and deputy editor of BBC History Revealed. As well as commissioning content from expert historians, he can also be found interviewing them on the award-winning HistoryExtra podcast. Kev is an arch-fan of all things medieval and Viking, with a particular interest in the intersections between history and pop culture. Under the guise of exploring history, he has trained in 14th-century Italian broadsword (courtesy of Fiore dei Liberi, who was kind enough to leave a manual), learned to sail a Viking longship in Roskilde, and hiked the ancient Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail in Japan’s Kii peninsula. These days, he’s a defiantly average archer. Prior to joining the history portfolio, Kev wrote about space science for BBC Sky at Night Magazine.
