He has acted as an educational advisor to several museums and heritage groups and is a member of the national Waterloo200 legacy group. He has written on the Napoleonic wars and has led groups around the Waterloo battlefield. He is currently writing a book about the 1795 mutiny of the Oxford Militia, one of whose officers was Henry, Jane Austen’s brother. He is a keen member of The Jane Austen Society and is convinced that he is married to Elizabeth Bennett. Paul has also taught in comprehensive and special schools.
