I took my undergraduate degree at the University of Birmingham. My Bachelor’s degree was on Ancient and Medieval History, covering different aspects and eras of history. After finishing my BA I decided to concentrate on Ancient History. As a result of this, I enrolled and completed an MA on Antiquity at the University of Birmingham. Through my Master’s degree, I discovered that I had great interest in the origins of democracy and in Athenian politics. My MA dissertation is entitled ‘Athens: From Aristocracy to Democracy: An Inevitable transition?’. My love for ancient and Greek history led me into starting a PhD, and more specifically focusing on Pseudo-Xenophon and his small treatise called ‘Constitution of the Athenians’.
