Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince, Historical Detectives
Before their serendipitous first encounter in 1989 on a doorstep in Swiss Cottage, north London, Lynn, originally from the city of York, was a journalist, editor of books and several major partworks (she was deputy editor of the seminal 1980s publication The Unexplained), broadcaster and television presenter. Clive, a Londoner, had worked for several years as a systems analyst for a major national charity.
Despite a tendency to attract surreal and dramatic happenings, their work has taken them to many exciting and mysterious places, from Egypt to the 'heartland of heresy', the south-west of France, from the USA to Ireland, and all over the British Isles, sometimes with film crews, sometimes alone.Over the years they have appeared on many television and radio programmes - their Shroud/da Vinci research being a particular hit with the Leonardo-loving Japanese - including the James Whale Show, This Morning, Ireland's Big Bite, Sky News, and Good Morning America.
They are also professional speakers, appearing regularly for the Saunière Society, the Questing Conference and the Fortean Times UnConvention, besides enjoying a host of one-off speaking dates, from all over the UK, Holland and Germany to the USA.
Lynn and Clive's most recent book is The Forbidden Universe: The Occult Origins of Science and the Search for the Mind of God, published in the UK and USA in March 2011.
Both Lynn and Clive live in Croydon, south London.
