Amy Jeffs

Amy Jeffs is an art historian specialising in the Middle Ages. In 2019, she gained a PhD in Art History from Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, having studied for earlier degrees at the Courtauld Institute of Art and the University of Cambridge. During her PhD Amy co-convened a project researching medieval badges and pilgrim souvenirs at the British Museum. She then worked in the British Library’s department of Ancient, Medieval and Early Modern manuscripts. She is now based in Somerset as a full-time author and artist printmaker. Her first book, STORYLAND: A New Mythology of Britain, was a Sunday Times Bestseller. By offering it here as a children’s book, she hopes to bring medieval stories to young readers, enabling them to populate a familiar landscape with goddesses, Trojans, giants, runaway servants and power-hungry kings.
