About Andrew Elliott

A graduate of Durham and Exeter, my research specialism is in the ways in which modern media (film, television & video games) re-use history. I’ve published on a range of topics within this area, including on the Epic Film, the peplum, medieval film, Arthurian legends and video games which use historical settings. My recent work has been on political uses of medievalism in the media. I am able to supervise a range of topics within my research field, and I particularly welcome enquiries from potential postgraduates interested in pursuing research in these fields at both MA and PhD level.
