About me



I am 51 years old, I have a wife, two children, and a dog . I am a Computer and Network Security Engineer which is pretty much a long way from Egyptology; although the Rosetta stone is revered by Cryptographers.

I have been interested in the civilisations of the Ancient Near East since university in the 70's (Ancient History & History - sadly not Egypt), although I have only pursued this actively in the last few years as I have had so much else to learn in the intervening period and my brain is only of average size! My particular interests are Egyptian Art and the Chronology of the Region with particular reference to Dendrochronology and Radiocarbon dating. My particular hate is anything to do with Astronomical dating.
