Mark Harbor A brief biography

Mark left school in 1975 clutching 2 'O' levels and 6 CSE's (one of which was a Grade 3 History); harbouring a hearty dislike for the arts and humanities. Eight years later, armed with 2 Engineering HNC's and a Management qualification, he entered the dubious field of Management Consulting. After 8 years, he found himself living in the North East of England, surrounded by 'history'; the site of the first commercial Bessemer Converter, and the home of the Stockton & Darlington Railway to name but two. In 1998, Mark moved to Oxford, where his increasing interest in history and the ever present love of literature prompted an educational divergence from engineering and management; into the world of English Literature and History. Currently in the second year of a part-time access course in these subjects, the ultimate goal is to complete a degree in history; just for the hell of it!
