Joanna Arman gained her love of Medieval History from childhood trips to castles, cathedrals, and Joust Weeks at Arundel Castles, before reading the Venerable Bede and watching Shakespeare’s history play as a graduate of the University of Winchester where she obtained a BA Degree in Medieval History quickly followed by a Masters.
She has a special interest in Medieval Women: not just Queens and noblewomen but also those lower down the social order, such as female landholders, businesswomen and female plaintiffs in marriage cases. Her first book was a biography of Aethelflaed, Lady of the Mercians which was published by Amberley in 2017.
She lives in Sussex, the county where she grew up, a stone’s throw away from the South Downs.
