Welcome to Electric Puppet.

It’s an odd name. It has no meaning, but is open to interpretation as to what it can possibly mean. It is also a good name, as it gives no impression as to what this blog is about. That means you have to keep reading to find out!

I completed a degree in Archaeology and Anthropology, and so a lot of this will be taken up with musings upon these two subjects. My main area of interest is the Anglo-Saxon period, but I am also excited by landscape archaeology, material culture studies, and gender studies in both arch and anth. In fact, I am open to any aspect of these disciplines, and as a result this blog is open to anything archaeological and anthropological.

However, I also have a passion for poetry and literature, and write my own poems that I hope one day to publish. As such, book reviews and the progress of my writing will also make regular appearances.

…but I don’t stop there. Art. Astronomy. Music. History. Politics. Nature. Science. All of these things capture my imagination, make me think and inspire me, and so Electric Puppet will host posts on these topics too. Indeed- I may write about anything that takes my fancy!

So- Electric Puppet is an odd name, and at the end of this, it still may give no impression about what this blog is about!
