Alice is a freelance writer and editor with an interest in all things culture-related. Obscure History is her forte, and she has a grim fascination with societal collapse in particular. She's from Cornwall in the U.K., but she lives the life of a digital nomad — writing from various locations around the world. Alice is particularly interested in exploring ancient ruins and lost places, both in her writing and on her travels.


Alice has a Bachelor of Arts in Ancient History from King's College London and a Master of Studies in Late Antique and Byzantine Studies from the University of Oxford. Her research interests focused on the last vestiges of pagan philosophy and religion in early medieval Europe.
