Today, I can present a new contributor and very talented young historian her on the KingRichardArmitage website:
 
 

David Harpham

 
 
He studied at the University of York and at the University of Sheffield, where the dissertation for his Masters degree in Medieval History focused on the relationship between the Nobility, the ‘Community’ and emerging perceptions of ‘the Realm’ in the Wars of the Roses era. (Short biography available here.)
 
 
David Harpham’s articles I read so far, convince me that a bright writing career lies before this young historian.

What David can do with a biography about Richard Neville, 16th earl of Warwick, called ‘the Kingmaker’, is really a joy to read and easily bridges the gap of over 500 years to our time.
 
David Harpham will entrance you in the life of a fascinating major player of the ‘Wars of the Roses’, who was so very influential for the education of the young Richard III during his time at Middleham.
 
Warwick the ‘kingmaker’ is also King Richard III’s father-in-law, as Richard III later married his daughter Anne Neville.
 
 
But now, I won’t divulge much more here and directly lead you to the full article:

David Harpham here also has an interesting article with the historian’s perspective on the ‘Battle of the Cities‘:
