Who am I?
Hi, My name is Aidan Colyer.
I am an Archaeologist and Historian with an undergraduate degree in Ancient history and archaeology and a Masters degree in Medieval archaeology. I have a passion for research especially in history as you might expect. I have also been tracing my family tree and studying the parts of history that my ancestors have lived through.
What areas of history do I like the most?
My main time period is the medieval era from the dark ages right through to the early modern period. I do like other areas of history and the main theme that I have studied and have a passion for is military history which encompasses all time periods. As I am English and have studied and worked exclusively within the U.K. it is from this perspective that I will be writing as that is what I am most comfortable with. I am expanding my knowledge throughout the world though and as I learn more I will post more here.
What is the purpose of this page?
The main purpose of this page is to put my research and knowledge on the internet for everyone to see and use. I believe that everyone should have at least a rudimentary knowledge of history and hope that the information that I put on this page (as well as the information I link to) will get people learning more about history.
Will there be more?
Eventually, when I have put enough information on this website, I will be creating some short eBooks on the subjects that I cover here. Watch this space for more information!
