Dr Charles Insley joins us in St Andrews as the Bullough Fellow for the 2022-2023 academic year. He is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester where he studies Insular History between c. 800 and c. 1100. He has written extensively on Anglo-Saxon charters and state formation, having recently completed a biography of the first king of the English, Athelstan (Routledge, 2018). His current research centres on intercultural connections and interactions around the Irish Sea from c. 800 to c. 1150.
