Hugh Nicklin studied Modern History at Oxford. He worked in England, Wales, India and the Balkans and finally, curious about the last days of the Roman world, came to the Languedoc in southern France. He has contributed articles to the Daily Telegraph and the Salisbury Review, and published his ‘History of Limoux’ in 2009.
His latest book, recently published in Kindle format, examines the history of the Lauragais region of Southern France, an often dark and intriguing place; around the 13th century the likes of Simon de Montfort, the Black Prince and other notorious figures from history patrolled the region doing their dastardly deeds. Hugh has eloquently captured their activities in his fascinating series of French History Books, in the course of an exploration of Lauragais history that begins half a million years ago with the first Stone-Age visitors and ends with the Airbus and the Cité de l’Espace.
