    Christopher Marsh spent nine long, hard years in Cambridge before escaping to Belfast in 1992. When he is not reading, researching, teaching, writing, marking or administrating, he likes to cycle, run, grow vegetables, track otters and entertain his various offspring. He offers various modules on aspects of early modern English history. He held a Leverhulme Research Fellowship 2004-6 and a visiting fellowship at Clare Hall, Cambridge in 2004, and is now a life member of the college.
