John S. Richardson's picture
John S.

From a very early age I had this interest in the subject of history, and as I grew older this interest in the past deepened. I was fortunate to be able to visit lands such as Egypt, Greece and Rome to explore and view the temples and cities that they built and lived in. When I moved from the City of Oxford north, I founded the Roman Living History Society, The Antonine Guard, as it was my aim to bring this part of history in the north alive. During this journey I have attended classes both at the British Museum in London and Oxford. In my travels I have met many people and while in Alexandria in Egypt I had a personal tour of the museum there, as the then curator had also studied at Oxford. My late father served in the Royal Navy so this also kindled an interest in the maritime ships of the past. I also served in the British Army in the Corps of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.

My recent book, The Romans and The Antonine Wall of Scotland’ is now available from Amazon .
