While the fire-brigade didn’t have mains water and high-tech inflammable clothing, it would have had enthusiasm. Medieval towns people well knew the risk of fire, and it can be expected that in a big place like Toledo, all the nearby inhabitants would have dropped everything to help put it out. Luckily the lack of thatch and timber will help them on this occasion, and maybe those amphoras didn’t have oil in them after all.

Since leaving the higher education sector I’ve been focussed on thinking about education more holistically – I’m particularly interested in the interface between education and media, but I want to understand better how we can bring our traditional educational institutions to embrace the possibilities that the network and media are opening up. We need to reinvent education to suit the nature of our working lives, and our need to engage in routine lifelong learning. I use my research and writing skills to explore these issues. I consult on education issues and assist postgraduate students with their theses.
As an artist, my new project is Mayor, a graphic novel set in thirteenth century Spain. You can find out more about these activities in my blog: geniwate.com.
