Rob Lucas


Joining Austention in the Spring of 2014, Rob Lucas is more at home in the 18th century than the 21st. When he's not writing bawdy 18th century adventures for his online webzine, or making 18th century clothes, he can be found playing period and folk tunes on the cittern.

With an M.A. in Modern History from Regent's Park College, Oxford, his career has seen him as a consultant in antique arms armour and militaria, a period inspired fashion designer, and editor of his own 18th century inspired webzine.

He plays renaissance cittern, celtic cittern (a descendant of the 18th century English guitar), lute and mandolin. Described by BBC Radio 4 as '..a modern-day highwayman ...imbued with the spirit of Europe's opulence and theatricality of the 17th and 18th centuries,' he brings a touch of the 18th century underworld to Austentation.
