The Peripatetic Historian

What happens when you cross travel and history writing? You produce a peripatetic historian.

This is the home page for the Peripatetic Historian, a 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).
