Dr Adrian Green
(email at email@example.com)A specialist in the social and economic history and archaeology of the period 1450-1750, Adrian Green’s main research topic is housing in Britain and its colonies. The question of how the social and economic aspects of housing were related to developments in the built form and style of houses is the subject of his forthcoming book: Dwelling in England: Houses, Society and the Market, 1550-1750. Other subjects of research and publication include regional and national identity, consumer behaviour, and the Hearth Tax. Adrian welcomes enquiries from students interested in studying many aspects of social, economic and cultural history - or historical archaeology - in early modern Britain and its colonies, at either MA or PhD level. He has particular expertise in the history of north-east England, for which there is a large range of archival sources, located in Durham, Newcastle and the region.
