David Rollason

David W. Rollason is an English historian and medievalist. He is a Professor in history at Durham University. He specialises in the cult of saints, the history of Northumbria and in the historical writings of Durham, most notably producing a modern edition and translation of the Libellus de exordio and co-operating on an edition of the famous Durham Liber Vitae.

Outside of his academic interests, David Rollason is a keen cyclist, cycling 175 miles from Edinburgh to Seaton Delaval to raise money to assist the National Trust in their purchase of Seaton Delaval Hall.[1]
