Tom Holland is a bit of a celebrity historian here in the UK having published several popular works on classical and medieval history. He had a public spat with hate preacher Jay Smith a few years back when Jay claimed that he inspired Tom Holland to write a book about Islam, which led to a controversial Channel 4 (UK) documentary.
