This blog was created by Emma, a 26-year old History (BA) and Ancient Studies (MA) graduate who, following Kylie Minogue’s lead, just can’t get it out of her head. After finishing her studies at Utrecht University she is now in need of a new platform to blurb about all manner of things historical. Her specialties include Herodotus and the Persian Wars; ancient courts; power and influence, specifically at the court of Theodosius II; as well as a notable interest in all things Augustus (the Roman emperor, not the month). As the header image betrays, though, her interests are much broader than that. On this blog readers will find posts concerning a wide range of topics, which, if all goes well, might serve to inspire, inform or otherwise influence them.
