Ask The Author

Here’s your opportunity to ask me a question on anything related to the blog, Tomb Raider or life in general. If you’re curious about what I do when I’m not working on this blog, what I thought of Marvel’s The Avengers, or which Tomb Raider game is my favourite, ask away!

Please note that I reserve the right to refuse to answer any questions I deem too personal or offensive. ;)

  1. Aside from archaeology related stuff what do you like to do best to unwind?.

    • When I’m not working or writing/researching for this blog, I unwind by reading (mostly non-fiction or travel writing), playing games (both casual Facebook games and on the Xbox 360) or just relaxing on the sofa with my partner and 2 cats. I’m also a traditional recurve archer and train once or twice a week at my local archery club. Despite my best efforts, my aim still needs quite a lot of work. If Lara had my aim, she probably would have starved or died quite early on in the game.. -_-

      • I’m also a cat man but me and my wife live in a small flat and aren’t allowed any. Archery sounds fun. How are you finding going back to work by the way, I know you said you’d had some time off.

        • Shame to hear that. I have a few friends in a similar position and I think that’s one serious downside of renting a flat. My partner travels for work once every month or so, so the house would be pretty lonely without the cats for company.

          Work is going OK so far, thanks. It’s been tough and I still have days when I feel completely demotivated but I try to focus on the positives. A career change may be in order in the not-too-distant future but I’m simply concentrating on getting back into the swing of things first.

          • Well done for keeping going. My way of getting through work is to switch off and think about what I want to do when I get home. I’m pretty new to twitter and the Internet in general but I’ve really enjoyed your artefactual.

            • Yes, that’s pretty much the thing that keeps me going at the moment (my work is less than inspiring at times). And glad to hear you’re enjoying my Arte-Factual articles. It’s a lot of fun doing the research for them. There’s always something new to learn. :-)

  2. are you an archaeologist?

    Posted by Circe V Wilson | 13/09/2013, 6:52 PM
    • I’m not. I studied for a certificate in archaeology a few years as a hobby but I’m not a qualified archaeologist or historian, just someone who’s interested in the past. :-)

  3. where did you study? Did Tomb Raider inspire you to study archaeology?

    Posted by Circe V Wilson | 15/09/2013, 12:52 AM
    • I studied for my certificate with Leicester University (they have some great distance learning programmes) and no, Tomb Raider didn’t inspire me to study archaeology. I was already interested in archaeology before the first TR game came out and I was actually drawn to the TR games *because* I was interested in archaeology…not the other way around. :-)

  4. That is awesome! I have recently been accepted by Leicester, practically in the same program! Thank you, I feel more confident in my decision to study there.
