Professor Malcolm Wanklyn's research interests are in the military history of the British Wars (1639-1652) and in the history of the river Severn and its environs from circa 1550. He has published books and articles in academic journals on strategy and tactics in the English Civil Wars and on many aspects of social, economic and religious development in the counties of Shropshire, Worcestershire, Cheshire, and Warwickshire from circa 1550. He managed the ESRC and Leverhulme Trust funded Gloucester Port Book Programme between 1984 and 1996, and he lectures and publishes extensively on the history of the river ports of the Severn and aspects of the economic, political and religious history of the counties listed above.
Currently Professor Wanklyn is working on further articles on armies, generals and politicians in the British Wars and on a database containing definitive officer lists of the New Model Army 1645-49 and of the army of Sir William Brereton. He has a contract for a history of the Welsh Borderland counties and for an edition of the Herefordshire Hearth Tax roll.
