A portrait of Alfred Duggan

Alfred Duggan

Historian, archaeologist and novelist Alfred Duggan's first novel, Knight in Armour, was published in 1950, after which he published at least a book every year until his death in 1964. His fictional works were bestselling page-turners, but thoroughly grounded in meticulous research informed by Duggan’s experience as an archaeologist and historian.
