Meet the tutors

Colin Hurst

Colin has a lifelong interest in history and music, pursued alongside his day job, first as a bookseller and then as a parish priest. His current interest is in how we study history, and how our own perspectives can be very different from those of the past. He has a great enthusiasm for teaching adult learners: his own academic qualifications were gained as a mature student and he is often involved in mentoring church ministry trainees

Don Chiswell

Don is a long-standing tutor at City College Peterborough and also delivers sessions and lectures on a wide range of eras to a wide audience. In answer to the question “What is your favourite period of history?” Don would most likely say “Just the last 3,250 years!” Don revels in demolishing popular historical myths and challenging his students to explore their own views on times gone by.
