Thanos Matanis's picture

Fact is stranger than fiction. Historiography has its origins in entertainment. While we should not fabricate the past, we need to remember how historiography began and re-engage with its narrative qualities. Like Herodotus, my passion as a writer is to distill history in a relevant and digestible way to audiences.

Thanos Matanis is a writer and archaeologist who is possessed by a penchant for the past. When he isn’t digging up artifacts, he contributes to online publications, like Ancient-Origins and Neos Kosmos.
