A little bit about Carol
Author-Amateur Historian-Traveler-Celtic Enthusiast
History permeates almost everything Carol enjoys, whether it is travel or volunteer work. Just ask her family! She enjoys gardening, especially learning about plants from the past and their culinary and medicinal uses.
Today, Carol and her husband, Dave, call Germany home, and she spends her time practicing German on their two cats and Widgit, the History Hound, who often joins them on their escapades.
Over the years, she has put her passion for history to good use as a volunteer and an interpreter spanning different periods from the Romans to the Middle Ages to the Revolutionary War, most recently as a member of the 7th Virginia Regiment.
During their tenure in Italy, Carol took part in the Pompeii Food & Drink Project, exploring the eating and drinking habits of the residents in 79 AD. While living on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, Carol volunteered as a docent conducting tours at Ker Place, a colonial home constructed in 1799.
