Norman Housley

I was born in Wiltshire in 1952 and studied for my BA and PhD degrees at Cambridge University. I have spent my career working on different aspects of the crusades, publishing on most features of the movement, but focusing on the ways in which the theory and practice of crusading developed from c. 1200 onwards. Since 1983 I have researched and taught at the University of Leicester, where I have been professor since 1991. I have held visiting fellowships at Oxford, Princeton and Washington.
