We’re beside ourselves to announce that Sir Tony Robinson will be with us as our guest for EM-Con 24.
Sir Tony is an English actor, author, broadcaster, comedian, presenter, and political activist. He played Baldrick in the BBC television series Blackadder and has presented many historical documentaries, including the Channel 4 series Time Team and The Worst Jobs in History. He has written 16 children’s books. Sir Tony created the children’s comedy series Maid Marian and her Merry Men, a loose retelling of the legend of Robin Hood in which he appeared as the Sheriff of Nottingham.
In 1994, Sir Tony Robinson began presenting Time Team, a TV programme devoted to archaeological investigations limited to three days. The series spanned 20 years, and included 59 one-off specials, which paved the way for his later history presenting career.
