IMG_0223d My name is Leslie. I am an historian, folklorist and writer.

At age 19, I left my native Germany and moved to 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 integrated 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.

My main research interests include European folk-beliefs and folk-customs, prehistory and mythology.
