About/Links

Hi there and thanks for visiting my blog and reading this section which is possibly least visited part of any site.

My love of Ancient History started with Greek myths and watching the Ray Harryhausen films (Jason and the Argonauts etc). I studied it at Uni and did an MA in it as well. Needless to say it’s had zero traction in the real world so I tried to find ways to keep the embers of the subject burning.

Initially I started on Twitter, before creating a blog on tumblr and even a Youtube Channel. More recently I’ve upgraded from a blog into a website, which is really a fancier blog, but it’s nice to have .com after your name. It’s definitely what Cicero would have done.

In the past months I’ve gotten into podcasting, you can find me on iTunes and Libsyn. As with anything technical it’s been a steep learning curve, so I trust you’ll notice the difference from my first verbal offerings which can seem a bit hectic to a podcast which even has its own jingle.

My aim in all of this is to continue my love in with what is a fascinating period in time and create something worth reading, watching or listening. I try and make the content accessible to everyone, you might someone who has never really encountered this area of history before or you may be a seasoned veteran on the subject. I genuinely hope you go away with a positive feeling about it all.

I am aware that this is beginning to sound like one of those Oscar acceptance speeches which becomes a meme. So I’ll leave you be. If you want to say hello, leave a comment. Oh, you can email me as well, ancientblogger@hotmail.com. Or come say hi on twitter @ancientblogger

Keep safe
