Slaves in Eden

About Tony Compton

I was born and brought up in the New Forest, Hampshire, UK. After school at what is now Brockenhurst College, and Cambridge University, I worked briefly on colour TV cameras with the Marconi Company in Essex, then taught school physics there and in Hertfordshire. I moved on to electronics, specializing in the medical field as a lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire (formerly Hatfield Polytechnic), along with some design consultancy. I retired with my wife Elisabeth to Hexham, Northumberland, in 2006, from where we visit our three children and five grandchildren as often as we can.
Since then I have continued my other interests of classical music, particularly choral and organ, photography, natural history and theology (from a liberal/progressive standpoint). I also assist Elisabeth in running a Fairtrade stall. Elisabeth took the photo while we were on a walk in Northumberland, our other joint activity.
My writing stems from a desire to explore how science and technology affect people, their beliefs and their lives, as much as the subjects themselves, though I read New Scientist regularly to keep up to date.
