χειρε! I’m Julian Hirsch an 18 year old first year at Oberlin College with a passion for archaeology and the world of antiquity. Over the last couple of years I’ve been lucky enough to have the opportunity pursue my passion both out in the field and in the museum/research setting. This blog is about my endeavors learning about the ancient world and my long term goal of becoming an archaeologist. I post periodically during the year to give updates about what I’ve been reading and learning which relates to the Ancient world. During the summer, I post more regularly and give weekly updates on my excavation experiences and my travels. Thanks for reading!
