My passion for the ancient world began at a young age.I was always fascinated by the ancient world. I was always asking my parents How did this get here? What did it do? Why was it made? Who built it? What happened to its owners? I drove my parents insane! This curiosity for the ancient world began predominately in the time period before humans. I wanted to be a paleontologist for the first 10 years of my life. Dinosaurs were simply way to cool. My mom would bring me to a lot of Natural History museums to see all the fossilized remains and around the state to check out any special exhibits. My passions didn’t turn to the ancient world until I was 14. Around that age, I began to become fascinated by ancient Roman, Greek, Egyptian, and Viking mythology. This newfound respect for the ancient world grew quickly to become a major expenditure of my time.
