Welcome! This is the personal website of Tom Johnson, an academic historian at the University of York in the UK.

My research focuses on the social, cultural, and political history of medieval England. I have particular interests in the history of everyday life, the meanings of law and authority, and the material world. I am also interested in new theoretical and methodological approaches to studying the past.

Here you can read about my research and teaching profile, download my articles and papers, and see what I’m currently working on.
