Hello everyone and welcome to my page! I thought I would use this section to tell you all a little bit about myself and the aim of my blog!


The aim of the blog is really to try and get as many people as possible interested in history. As a Classics graduate, I really do feel like History is becoming increasingly marginalised and that humanities subjects as a whole are being viewed as a waste of time. A lot of people ask me why I bother with history and view it as kinda boring! I want to change this perception and create a blog which not only discusses history, but does so in a fun and engaging way which is accessible to everyone. So that is it really, I am trying to make history fun again! I hope you enjoy and stick around for the journey!


I am a recent postgraduate from Edinburgh University, graduating with an MSc in Classics. I have always loved history and I honestly don’t think I can pick a favourite period – I love everything from the Ancient Greeks to the Tudors and beyond! I am a huge fan of fantasy, in particular J.R.R.Tolkien but I also love The Witcher, The Elder Scrolls, Harry Potter and much more. If you have any fantasy book recommendations or need any please do not hesitate to ask! I love reading, writing, Scuba Diving and generally living life to the full. I hope you enjoy my page as much as I enjoy writing it!
