About My Library
As a wargamer I have a vast collection of History, and Historical Fiction. It covers many periods but tends to peter out as the Rennaisainse and therefore Gunpowder start to become more prevalent. I became a great fan of Historical Detective novels after reading 'The Silver Pigs' by Lindsay Davis.

My overall favourites are the Dark Age and Early Medieval period in Britain - specifically Scotland (hence the name) and Tang/Sung Era China. I dabble in many other periods, usually as a particular army takes my fancy for wargaming.
About Me
By day I'm a statistical programmer, and in my spare time I'm an Ancient Wargamer. I live in Canberra with my wife and two daughters.

In my past I was a serious (but not exceptionally good) volleyball player but put that aside as my family increased in size and age.
