About The Author
My name is Christopher Jones. As an aspiring writer and ancient Near Eastern historian, I began this site in order to improve my writing skills. Now, it is primarily a vehicle for exploring facets of ancient history that I find interesting.
My research interests in the ancient world are in Assyria, religion, violence, and society, and maritime history.
I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with highest honors in Peace, War & Defense and Ancient & Medieval History, with a minor in Archaeology. I am currently attending Wheaton College to earn my M.A. in Biblical Archaeology.
Besides the ancient world, I also maintain a research interest in the history of North Carolina, especially during the American Civil War. More information about my academic life can be found below:
