About Me | Contact

MeMy Name is Fin Dwyer, I am 34 year old historian, author and blogger. I studied archaeology and Greek and Roman Civilisation in University College Dublin and completed a masters in archaeology in 2004.

After working in archaeology for several years in the Dublin region a combination of the recession and ill-health ended my aspirations to become Indiana Jones. Since 2008 I have been researching the social history of Ireland in the late Middle Ages. I also have a keen interest in modern Irish history.

I create free podcasts  on Irish history on  regular basis. You can find the full back catalogue here.

In 2013 I published a book on life in late medieval Ireland entitled ‘Witches, Spies and Stockholm Syndrome, Life in Medieval Ireland’ with NewIsland Press. Since then I have written my second book ‘1348 – A Medieval Apocalypse, War Famine & Plague in 14th century Ireland‘. This will be launched in the summer of 2016 in conjunction with a speaking tour.

Through 2015 – 2016 I created ‘The other 1916’ for the RTE history show which looks at events outside the headline news of war and rebellion that year.

I am available for tours of medieval Dublin. Find out more about these tours here.
