A historian, media communications professional and writer, Lindsay has a passion for the military history of the Roman Empire. He is a regular contributor to Ancient Warfare and has written for Military Heritage and Strategy & Tactics magazines and UNRV.com.
Informing his writings are the 10 years he spent with The Ermine Street Guard, the world’s leading reconstructive archaeology and re-enactment group for the Roman period. From that time he draws on the sights, sounds and smells he experienced first hand from a period soldier’s perspective.
He holds a bachelor of science degree from the University of Aston in Birmingham, England, and has taught adult education classes on life in Roman times. Lindsay divides his time between Austin, Texas and Wokingham, England.
The first account to be written in 2,000 years, it is the true tale of the heroic life and swashbuckling adventures of Emperor Claudius’ father, Nero Claudius Drusus Germanicus – soldier, builder, explorer, statesman and role model for the Caesars.

ALL THINGS UNDER THE SUN
Natural disasters, the financial crisis, political strife, the Middle East, the treatment of wounded soldiers, free and fair elections, foreign relations, sports results, travel delays, death and taxes...
The issues that make the headlines today are also the things people worried about 2,000 and more years ago. Learning how the people of the past dealt with them can prepare us to face the issues affecting us today.
The past is a virtual laboratory in which we can study how cause and effect plays out in different circumstances. Combining a researcher's skill at finding unexpected connections in everyday events and a historian's knowledge of source material, in ALL THINGS UNDER THE SUN: How Modern Ideas are Really Ancient Lindsay takes a clear eyed and often witty look at modern times through the longer perspective of ancient history and reveals that, as the old adage goes, 'all things under the Sun, there's nothing new'.
