About

Exeter has the most vibrant history community in the South West but it is hard to keep up with the outpouring of recent research. Join us for a lively debate as two of the county's most eminent historians discuss some of the most exciting discoveries that have reshaped the city's history.

Dr Todd Gray MBE is a historian who has specialised in the history of Devon.  He has written more than 40 books on the county and his latest is The Exeter Cloth Dispatch Book, an analysis of Georgian cloth samples that he recently discovered. This has been called 'the discovery of a generation'. Todd has served as a committee member, chair or president of all the county's six historical societies and in 2018 was made an honorary freeman of the City of Exeter. He is an Honorary Research Fellow in the University of Exeter. His forthcoming book is entitled Devon's Last Slave-Owners.

John Allan, BA, MPhil, FSA is the Consultant Archaeologist to the Dean & Chapter of Exeter Cathedral, Archaeological Adviser to Glastonbury Abbey, a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London, Senior Hon. Research Fellow of the University of Exeter, President of the Friends of Devon Archives and Past President of the Devon Archaeological Society and of the Devonshire Association. For twenty years (1984-2004) he was Curator of Antiquities at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Exeter. He has published about 200 papers on different aspects of the medieval and later archaeology of South-West England including ceramics, church architecture, numismatics, domestic buildings and cultural links to Brittany.
