IMG_0223dMy name is Leslie. I am an historian, folklorist and writer specialising in ancient European cultures, prehistory, mythology, folk-beliefs and folk-customs.

History has been a lifelong passion that has continuously inspired and fascinated me since childhood. Growing up, I was particularly interested in the history and cultures of the British Isles. So at age 19, I left my native Germany to move to Scotland.

I went on to study at the University of Glasgow, holding degrees in Celtic Studies (MA Hons), and Ancient Cultures (MLitt), with a background in history, archaeology and museology. I have researched ancient European cultures, folkore and mythology for more than a decade.
