I am a popular historian and literary critic from a traditional academic background. I am interested, broadly speaking, in all aspects of history and literature, but I specialise in the medieval period, generally, with a particular focus on Anglo-Saxon England and human interactions with the natural world.

Here you will find links to my published work, social media accounts and biographical information. You can also use the ‘Contact’ link to get in touch.

‘A bold and wide-ranging expedition into the wildest corners of the early medieval mind; Flight skilfully conjures the primal fears and ancient wonders that once lurked in England’s shadowed groves and hollows.’ — Thomas Williams, author of Viking Britain: A History

‘Although he wears his learning lightly, Tim Flight covers an impressive amount of ground to bring us his thoughtful, stimulating account of monsters in the early medieval world. Moving from Beowulf’s historical context, through maps, wolves, dragons, devils, and the Grendelkin to present-day fears, Basilisks and Beowulf opens up a strange and yet hauntingly familiar world to anyone who has read the poem or any of its multitudinous offspring.’ — Dr Jennifer Neville, Royal Holloway, University of London
