* Please be aware that I am en expert in Greek MYTHOLOGY, not history * I can answer quite a few questions regarding Classical Greek & Roman Mythology.

I became interested in the subject at a very early age, and learnt more and more as I grew up by visiting libraries and browsing through the internet. I believe to have a very wide knowledge on the subject.
Primary (3-10 years), Secondary (10-16 years) and Post-secondary (16-19 years) education.
