I have agreed to write a short piece for an upcoming e-book on the subject of ‘Blogging and Archaeology’. The e-book will be part of the #BlogArch movement over at Doug’s Archaeology. As a relatively new blogger I don’t necessarily have much to contribute, but thinking about what I would like to write prompted a deeper reflection on the nature of this blog, and why I created it.
I am quite a nerd. I always have been, and after spending a good deal of my life trying to hide it, I now no longer care. Video games have been a passion of mine for years and I love how they are becoming more accepted, mainstream and ‘cool’.
For most of my life I have always thought of myself as British. This is perhaps a misleading opening sentence because I am, of course, British. However, I am also English, and it is only really through studying the past that I really understood what that meant.
