About Sam Chadwick

I teach the English Civil War seminar set for the level 4: The Mystery of History module. I am interested in all aspects of British warfare but tend to limit my focus toward the English Civil War and the Wars of the Roses. In particular I specialise in the first English Civil War.

Teaching

I contribute to the teaching of the following modules:

  • The Mystery of History

Research

My doctoral research explores the significance of artillery in sieges in the English Civil War. It uses a combination of archaeology, accounts, letters and historic manuals to determine their use and influence in these conflicts.
