What a find!

Seems they've discovered the tomb of an Iron Age Celtic prince in France.

A map of the Earth handed down for untold ages? Hmm...
by Arjun Walia Collective Evolution Human history is quite an enigma. We know so little, and much of what we think we know seems to be highly questionable in the wake of new evidence, as well as pre-existing information that challenges our current understanding of the world.

More than just Robin Hood--there were other outlaws that came to be heroes in the people's memory. Steven A. McKay explains.

Having just seen "The Monuments Men" and wishing such a team that could go in and rescue the works of Iraq before ISIS destroys everything, I'm very glad to read about another rescue...

h/t +Adam Haviaras for sharing the blog post on Zeugma.
In my years of research, I've come across many ancient sites that have quite taken my breath away with their history and the splendour of their remains. One of these sites is located in what is now the south-eastern part of modern Turkey. It's called Zeugma, and it is one of those places that ...

Introduction

I am a writer of historical fiction/fantasy with Eagles and Dragons Publishing, trained as an historian and archaeologist. 

For as long as I can remember I have loved the past, stories of ancient peoples and places. Places are portals to the past and so I like nothing more than walking the ground of an ancient site, taking in the details and facts and then letting my imagination take over. 

One day I came to the realization that it would be a great thing to combine two of my favourite things, history and creative writing, to make the past accessible, thought provoking and above all, entertaining. I have studied ancient and medieval history and archaeology, and creative writing since 1991 and obtained an Honours B.A. from the University of Toronto, and a Masters from the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. My studies have focussed on ancient and medieval warfare with a very special interest in Arthurian studies.

I'm always interested in connecting with other history lovers, readers, writers and anyone who loves to create art. 

So, drop me a comment or stop by my blog to connect around the virtual hearth fire.

Cheers!

I am married with 2 kids and I've been lucky enough to travel a fair bit and get some inspiration from ancient sites all over the UK, Europe and North Africa.
