Profile of professional Battlefields Guide, Mike Scott:
Mike Scott is a teacher, historian and writer, with incomparable knowledge of WWI, WWII, Battlefields sites and 20th Century History and culture.
“I became a teacher in 1984 and soon after began to take groups to the battlefields of World War One. I soon discovered my great passion in education – outdoor learning in all weathers. I have long believed that it is important to bring learning, especially history, to life in the original environment if possible. I began to take students to battlefields further afield in Germany, Austria, Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary as well as supporting the work of colleagues in other ventures. I am now a qualified guide of the International Guild of Battlefield Guides and a Guild Council Member.”
