About Lynda Skipper

I joined the University in 2011, having been previously employed by the National Trust and the Science Museum. I live in Lincoln with my husband, and two sons, along with three chickens, one small black and white cat, and one huge fluffy black and white cat. We also have a Morris Minor, which we are currently restoring, and a Wolseley 16/60.
