My name is Leslie. I am an historian, folklorist and writer specialising in ancient European cultures, prehistory, mythology, folk-beliefs and folk-customs, which I have researched for more than a decade.
History has been a lifelong passion that has inspired and fascinated me since childhood. Growing up, visiting museums and reading about history were two of my all-time favourite things to do. 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 in Scotland.
A year later, I went on to study at the University of Glasgow, where I obtained my first 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.
