Subject: American History

Russell’s main interest is American history and the development of the US constitution, the American Civil War and the 1960s and the war in Vietnam.

He is also interested in the Crusades and medieval history, but that’s a bit difficult to fit into ‘American’ history. Russell is a speech and language therapist at Southmead Hospital by day.

He was born in the US state of Kentucky but has been in the UK since 1997. He’s now married to Liz, from Bristol, so he plans on staying.
