Jonny Wilkes

Freelance writer

A former BBC History Revealed staff writer, Jonny has a lifelong love of history and continues to write for BBC History Revealed and HistoryExtra.com. Armed with a BA in History from the University of York (and a Journalism masters from Cardiff University) he has developed a fascination with ancient civilisations, the history of North America from the Founding Fathers, and everything around D-Day. Jonny has spent many hours on Normandy beaches, the cliff at Pointe du Hoc, and the town of Sainte-Mère-Église contemplating how that one day in 1944 changed the 20th century.
