Interests My main interests are the history and archaeology of the Roman period. As well as collecting Roman coins I also have a collection of British coins with a "Britannia" theme and a small collection of Greek coins of Alexander the Great.
I also enjoy driving and have driven across much of Europe. I have had a lot of cars over the years but I have never been faithful to any particular car manufacturer. My first car was a Ford, my current car is a Mercedes.

Occupation Retired
About Me I retired early in 2007 when I was 60 and I have collected Roman coins on and off for over fifty years.
I have always had an interest in Roman history probably because, as a boy, I lived in a house built behind the Antonine Wall in Scotland and the monument was one of my favourite playgrounds.
I am married and have four children. I read a lot, both fiction and non-fiction. My favourite Roman writer is Ammianus Marcellinus because he attempts to write accurately and without bias, my least favourite is Suetonius because much of his oft quoted works seriously lack credibility.
