‘We interviewed Dr Ariane Galy for our documentary series, ‘Wicked Inventions’. She was very knowledgeable across a wide and diverse range of subjects, from high heels to camouflage. It was a pleasure to work with her: she had prepared thoroughly and was easy to work with. She gave just the right level of detail in her answers, coming across with authority in an engaging way – perfect for television!’
‘Dr Ariane Galy is a skilled, dedicated, perceptive and imaginative historian. Having worked with her for several years, I can attest to her abilities. She is a disciplined, methodical and hard-working researcher who writes stylishly, elegantly and concisely. I thoroughly recommend her.’

‘History Box proofreading is an excellent, high quality service, which I can’t recommend highly enough. The fact that this is done by a highly qualified, professional historian makes it ever more valuable than simply a proofreading exercise. I recommend History Box to anyone who is looking for thorough, professional and insightful proofreading of their academic, or indeed any other, work.’
Dr Alexander Titov, Lecturer in Modern European History, Queen’s University Belfast
‘Ariane contributed a concise history of Russia for children to our website http://www.findoutaboutrussia.co.uk. This not only demonstrated her flexibility and good nature – she swallowed hard when asked to put all that information into two webpages, and make it interesting for 10 year olds – but also her professionalism. She was wonderful to work with: kept all her deadlines, produced interesting and colourful copy, was very patient with our requests, and good-humoured throughout. Very many thanks Ariane!’
Jenny Carr, Chairperson, The Scotland-Russia Forum
