I have been a history teacher for fifteen years and an examiner for GCSE and A level for six years.

My web site HISTORY GCSE is a site designed to help students prepare for their examinations. One of the main features of the site is a large section on Weimar and Nazi Germany.

Although I'm a teacher of German and English (BA) I deal with the nazification process of the Germans of Romania, whose example is typical for all socalled "Volksdeutsche".

My websites deal with and criticize nationalism, racism, antisemitism, historical revisionism, irrationalism, fanaticism and the culture of resentment, cultivated by all groups of Volksdeutsche even after settling in Germany.

There are also editions of texts taken from German archives or from "Suedostdeutsche Vierteljahresblaetter", the organ of the nazi "Deutsche Volksgruppe in Rumaenien" (1940-1944),

Kritische Blaetter zur Geschichtsforschung und Ideologie

Die aktuellen Themen

An book of documents: Die Rumaeniendeutschen zwischen Demokratie und Diktatur. Der politische Nachlass von Hans Otto Roth 1919-1951

Having obtained a degree in Archaeological Studies I worked as a field archaeologist in Britain and then at the University of New Mexico. From there I moved into education and became a teacher in 1984. I have been a Head of Department and am currently the Head of History and Archaeology at the West Somerset Community Collge in Minehead, Somerset and also a Senior Teacher there. I have also gained examination experience having served as a moderator, examiner, team leader for both, Principal Examiner, INSET provider and reviser for one of the major GCSE boards (a number of these posts I still retain). I have published a number of things for Heinemann, Hodder and Stoughton and Shire Publications.
