Dr Adrian Hodd studied Geography at Cambridge University from 1968 to 1971 then was employed by the University of Dundee as a Research Assistant in the Geography department from 1971 to 1975. During his time in the department he completed his PhD Thesis, "Draining the Carse of Gowrie", (1974-5), before going on to produce two further works in the same vein, "Runrig on the Eve of Agricultural Revolution in Scotland" (1974) and "Cultivation of Orchard Fruits in the Carse of Gowrie" (1975), both of which were published in the Scottish Geographical Magazine. He also worked with Professor S J Jones on his research interests.
Hodd left the university world and for the next 34 years pursued various posts in school teaching and local authority educational administration in Lancashire, Cumbria, West Sussex, Lincolnshire and East Sussex. His last substantive post was as Headteacher of Lewes Old Grammar School, East Sussex, and he retired from this post in 2000. He has since carried out some teaching on a part-time basis at an international school near Hastings, finally entering full time retirement in July 2008. In 2009 he was aged 60.
