Timothy Bowman is a historian who specialises in British and Irish military history.
Born and raised in Bangor, Co. Down Dr Timothy Bowman took his first degree from The Queen's University of Belfast in 1995 and then completed his Ph.D. in 1999 in the now sadly defunct Department of History at the University of Luton (now Bedfordshire) under the supervision of Professor Ian F. W. Beckett.
He held lecturing posts at The Queen's University of Belfast, University of Durham and King's College London (based at the Joint Services Command and Staff College) before coming to Kent in 2005.
To date his research has considered aspects of the British army in the Great War and the Ulster Volunteer Force of 1910-22. He is currently completing a co-authored book (with Professor Mark Connelly) concerning the Edwardian British Army and will then turn his attention to a co-authored work (with Professors Ian Beckett and Mark Connelly) concerning the British army in the Great War. His next major research project will concern the Irish soldier in the British army c. 1793-1968.back to top
