    History Is Alive

    Most people consider history to be dry and boring, but I don't. Not at all. History is much more than the events, great and small, that make up most history books. History is people. People like you and me. Living, loving and dieing. It used to be that I wasn't very...

    It's Strange

    it's strange that we live in an age of storytelling (movies, novels, soaps...) but hardly seem to be interested in ancient history.  i don't mean the Romans or the Greeks and their wonderful mythology and art, but also more ancient peoples like the Egyptians, the ancient...

    I Love The Mystery Of It

    I do love ancient history. Modern history is okay...there's lots of source material, sometimes videos and photographs and its easier to access without needing to learn ancient languages or delve into completely alien cultures, but sadly for me it lacks mystery and that's what I...

    I'm No Scholar

     I'm no scholar, but I'm fascinated by ancient cultures and history. So many different and diverse cultures over the ages spread throughout the world. The art and architecture grips me.

    I Love The History And Mythos Of The Ancient World.

    I find it deeply fascinating to learn where we have come from - and to see the impact it has had to this very day. It is amazing to see how far we have come, how far we have fallen, and how much has remained the same. I find it enjoyable that in almost everything I see there is...

    My hometown Saint Tropez has an interesting

    history. It was a strong point for guarding the bay for Greek shipping. In the Middle Ages it was a Genoan fortress. Of course, it's modern history is quite different!

    I majored in Ancient

    and Medieval History in college and am still fascinated by it. Egypt, Greece, Rome, etc., and later kings, knights, castles and cathedrals. I was lucky enough to be able to sort of make a career out of it. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be something many women are into, so its...

    I find it fascinating.

    So many mysteries too. The other day I learned that the ground underneath Rome looks like Swiss holey cheese. They used to mine underneath the ground and there are also Christian, jewish and pagan catacombs. I also learned there was a religion called mithraism in Roman times I...

     I like to use the styles, ideas, and concepts of ancient societies when writing fiction stories. An alien species that resembles the Roman Empire, or cult of mages who worship gods similar to the Egyptian dieties.

    Why Are So Few People Interested?

    Ancient History has a strange duality of opinion about it. If you ask a person on the street if they like ancient history, you'll get a funny look and a no. If you ask the same person if they watch Spartacus: Blood and Sand, odds are you'll get an enthusiastic yes. People couldn...
