I have an indeep knowledge of European history, expecially Ancient, Roman and Medieval history. I focus my attention on military history as well; I have access to a university library with many ancient books.

Experience in the area

Mainly through self study (other than my university studies in laws) I have acquired a good knowledge of the topic, which I enjoy further study.
