David Santiuste is a historian of late medieval Britain. He is the author of two books: Edward IV and the Wars of the Roses and The Hammer of the Scots. His other publications include contributions to Medieval Sexuality: A Casebook and Medieval Warfare.
David grew up in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, where his interest in history was inspired by visits to nearby castles and churches – as well as regular trips to his local library. He went on to study at the University of St Andrews, where he continued with postgraduate research. He currently teaches history at the Centre for Open Learning, University of Edinburgh.
David is also the creator, with Rae Tan, of the website Reflections of the Yorkist Realm. You can follow him on Facebook at David Santiuste – Historian or on Twitter @dbsantiuste.
