About Ancient Links

This is a blog. Just in case you haven't figured it out.
It's not meant to be an academic paper, so you're not going to find bibliography and research notes and MLA style citations. I'm trying to stick with the facts, to the best of my abilities, but if you really want to be sure about something, go subscribe to your local library and read actual historians.
If you do find any mistakes, feel welcome to leave a message, and I'll dig in some more.

On some posts, I try (very hard) to be funny. For that end, I might bend the truth a bit to coin a better joke. Please be gentle in judging those instances, even if the joke isn't very good after all.

The content is original, but don't expect any epiphanies. I'm not a historian, I do not have an academic background in ancient history, I do not work in this field. I'm just an enthusiast, sharing with the rest of the world stuff that's been written 2,000 years ago, but I just found out about it.

If you want to republish anything from this site, drop me a note. At this point I can't honestly think of any reason why I would deny such a request; just that I may get frustrated if you do it without telling me.

I case you find bits of information you want to re-use in a serious paper, leave a comment and I'll do my best to find the book where I read it in the first place, and give you the proper quote. No guarantees, though.

I'm making all efforts for the proper attribution of the images used on this site. As far as I know, they are either licensed as creative commons, images from the public domain (generally scanned from books published before 1920), or images of my own. If you find any content that was mis-attributed or should not be here at all, please inform me and I will remove it immediately.
