I am an historian, folklorist and writer specialising in ancient European cultural history, prehistory, mythology, folk-beliefs and folk-customs.
History has been a lifelong passion that has inspired and fascinated me since childhood. I developed a particularly strong interest in the culture and history of the British Isles. So at age 19, I left my native Germany to live and learn in Scotland.
A year later, I went on to study at the University of Glasgow, where I obtained a degree in Celtic Studies (MA Hons), with a background in history and archaeology. After my graduation I continued my research, and, realising that I wanted to take a multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural approach to my study of European history and cultural heritage, I followed on with a postgraduate degree in Ancient Cultures (MLitt), which combined history, archaeology, classics and museology.
