Andrew Wareham was born in Hampshire in 1965. He is a British writer and historian. He has written several articles as well as books on the subject of Anglo-Norman and Anglo-Saxon history as well as the Hearth Tax. He works as a reader in London in Roehampton University’s department of the humanities.
Wareham started out his higher education attending Birmingham University. He graduated and attended King’s College for his Masters degree. The writer’s doctoral dissertation was overseen by the individual Nick Brooks. It came under completion in 1992 and explored the aristocracy of the Anglo-Norman and Anglo-Saxon people in the East Anglia region.
He has worked as a lecturer on the topic of medieval history while going to the University of Manchester and the University of Oxford for two years from 1992 to 1994. The Institute of Historical Research employed him as well for 7 years.
His friends and family connections in the South East Asia region ended up leading to further work being done on comparative history when it comes to Europe and South East Asia during the early parts of the middle ages. Wareham also partly completed this while working at LSE and Lingman University as an academic visitor.
He has used his degree and economic history to his great benefit in his career. He then went to King’s College (London) and worked in the Digital Humanities department as a research associate for three years. There he worked on a special project and then in 2006 was appointed to be the Director of the Hearth Tax Project by the British Academy at Roehampton University as part of their department of humanities.
He was promoted in 2007 to be a reader when it comes to early modern and medieval history. In the year 2010 he worked along with John Price and Ruth Selman to establish a digital portal when it comes to hearth tax records and their publication.
This was eventually replaced some years later in 2019 with Hearth Tax Digital, designed by Wareham along with Georg Vogeler, providing a new approach when it comes to researching the hearth tax. Users are able to read returns and search them as well with contextual information and also read them in the original order that the documents were composed.
They are also able to search data across different counties and the returns using the function of the advanced search. The inquiries are able to provide other names that were listed along with a name that was searched for. This is able to totally change the way that searches of family history are done for regular people as well as genealogists and historians in particular. The improvements and the way that people can now search has made it a powerful tool for historians for research.
Wareham is not only a novelist but a teacher and historian. He taught for a decade and also was in Papua New Guinea for yet another decade collaborating with the police force there.
WW1, Pilots at War, RFC
The Royal Flying Corps grew from the amateur hobbyists flying the earliest and most dangerous machines. Mostly drawn from the Army and Navy, the pilots regarded themselves as gentlemen members of a new club. The Great War saw the death of amateurism – except in the higher ranks – and the unplanned, fortuitous creation of a professional force.
Innocents At War follows the career of teenage pilot, Tommy Stark, an enthusiastic boy forced to grow up quickly as many around him die. His deep affection for squire’s daughter, Grace is his only certainty as the bitter conflict threatens to strip the world of its innocence.
