Debby Matthews MA Dip Lib – I graduated from Sussex University in History within the School of Cultural and Community Studies; with particular interest in Sussex history. I have some experience in oral history practice and community history projects and attended the Life Stories course at Centre for Continuing Education at Sussex. I have an MA in Library and Information Studies. For the last three years I have been part of the RocketFM History Hour commmunity radio team producing programmes of local historical interest during Bonfire season.
Guided walks or talks on any subject relating to Gideon Mantell’s life or work can be arranged.
Talks can also be given on other topics:

“Rediscovering America” Sussex Quaker philanthropist William Allen and the allotment Colony of “America” in Mid Sussex (1820s)
