Hi, my first name is James and I live in Derbyshire, England. I am English by origin but have travelled extensively internationally. My main interests are generally in history, politics, religion and also specifically in the geography, landscapes, culture, history and beliefs of people in the British Isles and Europe. I specialise in the history and archaeology of Roman and Sub-Roman Britain and also have a keen interest in Byzantium and related fields like the Holy Roman Empire and Late Antiquity. I am not an archaeologist or historian by profession, but a keen amateur, which has pluses and minuses.

You are viewing the user page of a BBC-fan, particularly of Radio 4 and BBC Four. The latter is a wonderful source of programming in a huge range of fascinating topics and I recommend it to international audiences who want to learn about Britain. For US citizens in particular, BBC News Online offers a welcome factuality and depth of commercial-free coverage often lacking in US media.

Derbyshire is famous for some rather lovely stately homes like Chatsworth and Haddon Hall, but it also has a lot of pretty countryside with gentle uplands, little stone walls and charming villages.

Please feel free to leave me a message.
