Astyages's Weblog

I figured that as my ‘About’ page already has two posts up on it (okay, I’ll admit it; one was from me!) that perhaps it was time for me to post an ‘about’ item…

About me: I’m an ex-London busker and anthropologist who likes to write and tell stories; especially stories which come from the earliest parts of our history. I’m interested in the anthropoogy of volence and also ancient history and mythology; I’m particularly interested in the point at which history merges with mythology; the mythical nature of history; the historical nature of mythology.

About this site: Already I’ve posted 6 chapters of my book, “Cyrus”, and will eventually publish the rest. I also intend to publish this book in hard-copy on an ‘on-demand’ basis, so if you’d like a copy please let me know.


  1. Thank you so much for visiting and following my blog. I was excited when i saw your blog, it seems that we share the same interests 🙂 Warm greetings from Finland, Maarit

  2. It’s pretty much what you’ve read on the Pigs Arms Hung, but I’m a couple of chapters ahead of the Pigs’ and I think it’s possibly more easily accessible to post whole chapters at the same time, as I’ve done here.

    I’m also still experimenting with blog themes, so let me know what you think…
