Britain's Greatest Living Historian?

Eric Hobsbawm is often declared 'Britain's Greatest Living Historian', but is that really the case? Are there others more worthy of that title? What about Peter Burke, Christopher Bayly, Chris Wickham, Judith Herrin or Robert Bartlett among many, many others? Or do only modernists count?

I don't know about Britain, but I would say that Keith H. Burgess is the greatest living historian in Australia. He has done more than anyone else I know of to promote living history in Australia.
