    I am interested in Australian history, in particular the shipwrecks of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) which are scattered along the West Australian coast. I completed a short course on maritime archeology several years back at the Fremantle Maritime Museum to learn a bit more about the subject. I also love anything to do with the bushranger Ned Kelly. I have been involved in several archeaological field trips to Kelly related sites including one where I was lucky enough to rediscover the ruins of a long thought to be lost hut in dense bushland which related to the shootout at Stringybark Creek in 1878. I was pretty proud of myself for that as I was credited with the discovery in a book which was released on Ned Kelly a year or so after I rediscovered the hut.
    I also love Australias convict history, my ancestors were hand selected by some of the finest magistrates in the whole of England to colonize my part of the world, something I'm also quite proud of! Cheers, Dave.

    I've always had an avid interest in History since I can remember. My personal library grew to thousands of diverse books and ended up taking up half of the upstairs of my house-in fact, I bought a large house with that directly in mind and had ceiling to floor shelves built and installed in 4 large rooms that weren't being used. As far as what subjects caught my interest, that would be quite a list. But areas of History? Well, let's see... Naturally, German WWI & WWII. Irish History, Celtic, Pre-Norman British Isles, Norse, Roman, Mongol, Tartar, Greek, Arab, British Colonial, Canadian Colonial, The Spanish Conquest, El Cid, most all Pre-Columbian Americas-Inca, Aztec, Mayan,etc. American Colonial, Revolution, 1812, Civil War, Indian Wars, WWI & II, Space, and probably many more that I'll think of later. For Non-History areas of interest- Vintage Irish Folklore, Genealogy, Phenomenology, Classic and Ancient Literature, Travel, Archeology, Paleontology, and the list goes on by the day. No doubt, I'll leave my wife a Heinous headache to take care of when I'm gone..."Uhh....Sorry 'bout that, Hon..." lol

    I have tried to post photos here on this forum but it is not possible. I have read the "how to post photos" in the tech forum. But Its Impossible!

    The only way you can see my thors hammer must be to "goggle" my name and use the "photos" option. Then the photo should be there for you to see.
    Im sorry but that is the only way i can show the thors hammer pendant to you. My Name to goggle: Trond Kolstoe

    All history holds a fasination with me. But the Neolithic period, Ancient Egypt and Ancient Rome are my particular interests. I too like Viking stuff, which seems to be a common trait with us, as my family come from the Danelaw too.

    Cheers, Ade.
