About me

Hopelessly a fighter, standing up for what I believe in, even I’m the only one standing.”

Archaeologist, historian, screenwriter, blogger and writer (and sous-chef, in my spare time now and to the utmost delight of my husband!) and ‘in love’ with my two Coonies, Thor & Sif. Graduating in Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at the University of Leicester in summer 2017.


Currently living in the United Kingdom, but feel the need to get out of this country asap after Brexit.

Inspiring quotes:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
– Steve Jobs

  1. Cara Merlin,
    oggi, ho trovato la tua pagina su Brexit, e vorrei dire che ti auguro tutto bene in questa situazione terribile che hai descritto. Il processo di dever vedere come si trasforma il proprio paese in questa maniera è veramente un incubo. Spero che potrai trovare un posto dove ti sentirai benvenuta.
    Tanti saluti
    David Cohen (Ollandese che adesso vive in Germania)
    P.S. Spero che non trovarai molti errori nell’ Italiano.

    1. Thanks David!! Il tuo italiano va benissimo e ho capito bene cio’ che intendi 🙂 Yes it is a nightmare and we are facing unprecedented issues; good luck in Germany (my stepmother-in-law is Dutch, lovely people you are!) x
