Mike Higginbottom Interesting Times is the brand for Mike Higginbottom’s history education work – tours, lectures and publications.
Mike offers distinctive, life-enhancing insights into the past, particularly the recent past, for people who enjoy visiting places and recognising the human stories behind this historical heritage.
He brings nearly fifty years’ experience of teaching and lecturing on architectural and social history in schools and university continuing education, specialising in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. He has lectured to Arts Societies [formerly NADFAS] in the UK, Spain, Australia and New Zealand.
Whether lecturing, writing or guiding tours, Mike provides detailed information in a lucid and entertaining way. His publications and lectures are copiously illustrated, as much as possible using his own photography.
Mike’s blog is a fund of interesting, sometimes quirky insights into places, people and historical events.
