Aaron Birchenough was born in Dover in the South East of England and spent his childhood engrossed in the fantastic history of the town, playing in the abandoned Napoleonic and Second World War fortifications on and within the cliffs of Dover. The history bug bit early. After studying archaeology at Bournemouth University he worked as an archaeologist professionally since 2004. The last 7 of which he was a senior archaeologist at the Museum of London Archaeology Service.
Whilst there he fell in love with a colleague’s sister and followed her over to Berlin when she moved here and he has called the city home since early 2012. He has excavated all over Germany and on a number of excavations in and around Berlin, working on one significant site near Alexanderplatz which produced some of the earliest medieval Settlements in Berlin.
He did not just fall in love with the woman (now his wife) but also the incredible history of the city and realized perhaps there was a different calling for him…something that combined the skills he learned whilst doing archaeology, dissemination of quality information, creating narratives and the history of Berlin…… and also a way of walking off the beer-belly. And so, since early 2015 Aaron has been running tours in and around Berlin working for different companies catering for very different clientele…and hasn’t stopped since.
Birchy’s Berlin Tours combines the positive elements of those different companies, creating an unforgettable historical tour experience of high quality and great value for the guests that choose to join us on a tour.
