What’s next?

I’m currently working on two projects.

One is a book called Roads to Rome. Part history book, part road trip, this will be an exploration of travel and travellers on the Roman road network across two millennia. It’s aimed at a general readership and is likely to be out in 2024, with translations into Italian and Chinese confirmed so far. Once I’m allowed to start doing the travel side, I’ll be featuring highlights on Instagram @ontheroadstorome.

The other is a more academic book on the rise of the gun in sixteenth-century Italy. The first articles and chapters from this are likely to be out in early 2022, with a book to follow once Roads to Rome is done.
