Professor Roland Rotherham

Dr Roland Rotherham B.A.hons, M.A, Ph.D., Ed.D, M.I.H.G.S. holds degrees in Ancient and Medieval studies, Anglo-Saxon Culture, Heraldry, Anglo-Norman Culture, Ancient and Medieval Cultural Studies, and Education. He is a member of the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies, and The Fellowship Of The Knights Of The Round Table Of King Arthur.

Referred to as 'The Doctor' even by his colleagues, and 'Roly' to his friends, he has been described as "the quintessential Englishman" and has devoted his life to the study of Arthurian and Grail Lore with frequent forays into the world of associated legends and mythology. Following a brief but distinguished career in the cavalry, visiting many of the worlds trouble spots and, more importantly he says, learning how to mix "A bitch of a martini" his own quest for The Grail has seen him travelling extensively across the globe including visits to the Indies, Lama herding in Peru, and being captured by river pirates in Indonesia.

Always delivered with a sense of humour the Doctor's lectures are greeted internationally by students who are left with a deeper knowledge of the subjects covered and some of the Doctors infectious enthusiasm which burns richly through all his talks. For over 30 years his life has been one of quests, both real and academic, and his searches through the world and its libraries weave magical tales and spells of Knights, Kings, Cups, and Fantastic Beasts that may or may not have been. He has searched tirelessly, following clue after clue in his travels, and has left behind many people who have become firm friends with the strange Englishman who climbs mountains, rides camels, and, of course, mixes "A bitch of a martini".
