Born in the North of England, Ian was raised around the historic docks of Liverpool where a love of Maritime history was born. He went on to study Archaeological sciences with the aim of specialising in Marine archaeology. His four years of study saw him divert from his original aim and concentrate on Roman imperial architecture and Urbanisation in the Ancient world. Working as an archaeologist for a number of years across Italy and the UK, Ian has spent 7 years working as a tour guide in Rome before the lure of the sea and sunshine brought him to Lisbon where he continues to research the urban landscape and the city’s vital relationship with the sea.
