Dr Matthew Green completed a PhD in the impact of the mass media in 18th-century London at Oxford University In 2009. Inspired to bring his findings to a wide audience, he turned to popular history and recently founded Unreal City Audio, which produces immersive themed tours of 17th and 18th-century London as critically acclaimed live events, audio downloads, and apps. He also writes historical features for the Telegraph and Guardian, appears in history documentaries on the BBC and ITV, and gives talks all over London. He is currently working on a book exploring the lost world of the 17th and 18th-century coffeehouse, building on his earlier limited-edition pamphlet published by Idler Books.
