About Dean A. Irwin

I completed my PhD (2017-20) at Canterbury Christ Church University where I studied the records generated by Jewish moneylending activities in England between 1194 and 1276. I am now an independent scholar, interested in the records (especially charters and financial documents) produced by, and in relation to, medieval Anglo-Jewry. I am also developing a project on the Jews and the baronial reform movement (1258-65) in England.
