Well, not really between 40 minutes and two hours north of Seattle, depending on traffic.I'm a nurse, a dad, and a (very) amateur historian. My primary interest has always been ancient history - Assyria, Akkad, Sumer and especially the Bronze Age Collapse. I've also always been fascinated by the wars that followed the French Revolution, especially the naval aspect of those wars, and like many I've read a fair amount about Hastings and the events of the eleventh century. I have read some other British history, but not much, and I am almost completely ignorant of the history of the British Isles before Hastings. I look forward to filling those gaps over the next few month.
