Back Up Copies Not For Review

As the author I have made a copy of the entire project for their own safe-keeping. This is because it is the project pages themselves that are subbed (not copies, as is the case for Edited Entries), so in the unlikely event of the Sub accidentally deleting a page, I have a back-up.


As a child I loved reading the Asterix comic books, and discovered the Asterix films. A decade or so later, I got a First Class History degree, having specialised in Roman history and Film and Television history.

A few years ago, on the release of Asterix And The Vikings, I celebrated with an Asterix weekend, where I watched back-to-back Asterix films with friends, including SciFiBloke / The Fish and former H2G2 President Peregrin.

I have visited most of the major Roman sites within the UK - from Fishbourne Roman Palace, Brading Roman Villa, several minor Roman villas and forts, Portchester Castle, Bath, York, etc - and even walked every step along Hadrian's Wall, from South Shields Roman fort to Bowness-On-Solway.

These days, there is a whole internet of articles written about stuff, so I hope to write things with a different angle. I hope to put a bit of my historical study side into the articles about Asterix rather than just write film reviews, after all, as far as I know, no-one else has done that (not that I've looked, admittedly. I don't want to read too many other people's reviews as I want to look at things from my own perspective and not be biased or influenced by others), and if I was to just write exactly the same thing as everyone else, there wouldn't really be much point, would there?

Previous Project Experience

Here is a list of my previous University projects:

  1. Piers Of The Isle of Wight, UK
  2. Anglo-Saxon Isle of Wight
  3. Dinosaurs of The Isle of Wight
  4. Isle Of Wight Shipwrecks
  5. Isle of Wight Radar During The Second World War - Part of Project: Radar.
  6. Halloween: Being The Adventures Of Michael Myers
  7. Yorkshire's Castles
  8. The American Beatles Albums
  9. Beatles Biopics - Coming Soon!

Was that any help whatsover? Am I trying to show off? Or wanted to list them all generally somewhere and thought that this was as good a place as any? You decide!
