My interest in ancient history is because I enjoy puzzles.
Some people like jigsaw puzzles, I like the puzzles that arise from history, myth and philosophy.
Finding a challenge, then following the puzzles that arise through like a modern Sherlock Holmes is fun. The puzzle can be anything: history, archaeology, myth, philosophy or science; but the fun is in the chase to find answers nobody else has found before. Mysteries are like a bone is to a dog to me, they encourage the use of different parts of my brain.
Today, I have been looking at “King” Arthur and other”kings” of ancient Britain, which has thrown up surprising links that nobody has ever considered. If I had the time, I am sure I would have been writing lots of books on the puzzles that I explore from history.
