When I was at the University, one of my side routes of
study was the classics. Having taken multiple courses
in Greek, Roman, Latin American and Norse Histories, I have come to
find that the Northern European
cultures and mythology has intrigued me especially. Perhaps due to
the extreme of these people; from the
barbary in their harrying (raiding and stealing) to the peaceful homelife
of the majority of the people, to the
intricate governments and structures these people set up for themselves.
From Northern Africa to the New
World, these peoples ruled the seas in a time when mythology was in
the making, the last of the pagan
belief systems to fall to the mighty hand of Christianity.

Pathetically, this page hasn't
been updated in a very long time, all the work goes into
the photogallery... but you can
see all books I have been reading the last couple of
years, including those of Scandinavian origin, on the books page.
