It is more than obvious that I am interested in history, mainly late Roman and Byzantine. military history, particularly battles and biographies are my favourites, because of laziness : it is much easier to work on short linear subjects instead of difficult, time-consuming generic topics.

Side-project: historical maps of the Classic, Roman and Byzantine era. See my account at Wikimedia Commons.

Feel free to come here and talk about such a subject if you think I could help with my limited abilities (be warned: my background is in Engineering, not Humanistics).
