Hello, and welcome to my website.
Here I chronicle my daily writings in my blog, and host some of my various writings. I also write for Headstuff.org.
Major sections include:
The Secret Life Of Irish Castles – Most recent project, 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.
