With the woman making history hip, it’s time to crawl out of the Dark Ages. Who better than academic, cultural historian and TV presenter, Dr Janina Ramirez, to shine the torch?

One journalist said she does for history what Nigella Lawson did to double cream. If Nigella was an expert in Latin, Old English, palaeography and archaeology at Oxford University that is. Janina has presented numerous BBC documentaries. Her latest book, The Private Lives of the Saints: Power, Passion and Politics in Anglo-Saxon England, explores the power players, king makers and politicians of their day, offering a unique and fascinating lens through which to explore the rich history of the Dark Ages.

Praised by fellow historian Dan Snow, for blasting a ‘powerful spotlight into the so-called Dark Ages’, Janina re-evaluates the role of the saints, taking them from their heavenly status to the human level.

Janina has also fronted two rock bands.
