Anything historical fan here


Hello everyone,

Stumbled upon this forum yesterday whilst researching and have already received some hugely useful info courtesy of a kind member.

I'm a writer working on historical fiction based around around the conflicts between ancient Rome and the Persian Empire under Shapur I.

I have a few peers who, knowing little about history, tell me my writing feels authentic and is obviously well researched, when in fact it really isn't. My main research comes from watching far too many episodes of Spartacus and the like (can you watch too many?). But I'm aim to remedy that and ensure historical references are actually plausible!

So hoping to both participate in historical discussions and learn a bit more about history too.

Only short stories published so far. If you read any I might get chucked off the forum

Thanks everyone. I'm very enthusiastic about being here.

I see a few of you are UK based. I'm in the Lakes. Pretty dry here today which is unusual.
