Hello, and welcome to my website.
Here I used to chronicle my daily writings in my blog. I still host some of my various writings here, but most of the stuff I write now appears at Headstuff.org. I have a regular column there called Terrible People from History, so if you want some education and amusement check that out.
Major sections here include:
The Secret Life Of Irish Castles – Documenting the expansive history of Ireland’s more impressive structures.
The Odd Side Of Donegal – The stranger side of the north-west corner of Ireland, where I grew up.
Forgotten Empires – Some lesser-known, overlooked and occasionally totally unknown civilisations.
The Many Civil Wars Of England – Documenting struggles for the control of England since 1066.
A Brief Guide To Byzantium – The successor to the Roman Empire gets short shrift in Western European history, where we’re often told that Rome ended with the fall of the West. I try to redress the balance.
