Digital Section Editor, HistoryExtra

Social networks

Kev Lochun is one of the Digital Section Editors at HistoryExtra. As well as commissioning content from expert historians, he can also be found interviewing them on the award-winning HistoryExtra podcast. He was previously Deputy Editor of BBC History Revealed. Kev is an arch-fan of all things medieval and Viking, with a particular interest in the intersections between history and pop culture. Under the guise of exploring history, he has trained in 14th-century Italian broadsword (courtesy of Fiore dei Liberi, who was kind enough to leave a manual), learned to sail a Viking longship in Roskilde, and hiked the ancient Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail in Japan’s Kii peninsula. These days, he’s a defiantly average archer. Prior to joining the history portfolio, Kev wrote about space science for BBC Sky at Night Magazine. A journalist for more than a decade, he has postgrad in magazine journalism from Cardiff University’s School of Journalism, Media and Culture, and has had bylines in BBC Science Focus, Your Family History, Men’s Health, Gamesradar and CVG.
