The Peripatetic Historian

So the first thing we need to discuss: this is not a blog. If this was a blog, the entries would be sorted chronologically, which makes following a lengthy travel series difficult. Sorry to have lured you here under false pretenses.

In fact, this is the home page for the Peripatetic Historian, my collection of travel and history articles. Below are some of my favorite series, as well as a few ephemeral pieces that lacked a home of their own. Click and enjoy.



The Via Romea Germanica

Join the Peripatetic Historian for a 650 mile hike down the spine of Italy. All roads lead to Rome (we hope).
