Viral History’s roving reporter is Gemma Chandler, a well-travelled journalist, history addict and Henry VIII enthusiast! Gemma’s love of history spawns from the Horrible Histories books she read as a child. Today though, her favourite history pastime is the Rex Factor podcast, which reviews the Kings and Queens of England in turn. Her current position as Digital Editor at National Geographic Kids magazine sees her writing curriculum-based history content for kids, among other things.

Gemma kicks off her work on Viral History with the series Material Evidence, in which she gets exclusive access to artefacts from notorious events and infamous crimes. @ChandlerGem
