Ancient History and Civilisations

Ancient History and Civilisations
I have always been interested in history from my early school days up to day in my forty's I read and surf the net for interesting articles on ancient history
My favourite period is the roman republican period and the roman empire but from time to time I will read up on the Greeks and other civilisations
My children through me are also history addicts watching the history channel and discovery on TV and visiting ancient sights ,Greece and Turkey ,my daughter as the travelling bug so much she as just completed a degree in tourism and is now studying a post grad degree so she can lecture at collage in travel and tourism ( she is only doing this so she can arrange more trips to go on and get paid for it)


my other hobby is fishing being stuck in doors doing my job for 40 hours a week ,when the weathers fine i go fishing in my local area being in the north west of england there is plenty coasre fishing to be had .


my friends and i go over to ireland every now and again to fish the lakes in ireland in county monohan and county cavan the home of a thousand lakes

    Ancient history? You would love Syria then: the 2 oldest cities in the world and wonderful classical sites, like Palmyra and Apamea, as well as the magnificent Crusader castles.

    Oh I'm so happy you found them helpful. I came back with that intention, to create tips that I wish were here on VT before I left. I do plan to add more, I've just been so swamped at work! :-)
