ACS Adventure

My Background

I have been climbing, mountaineering, caving, kayaking and skiing as long as I can remember. Growing up I spent most of my spare time in the hills. Spreading this enjoyment is something I enjoy in its own right!
Landscape archaeology has always been one of my interests. When you spend a long time in the outdoors you start noticing things and wondering how they came to be there. That's why I wrote the Archaeoroutes series of walking guides to ancient sites. You can view a selection of my walking and climbing experience in my online logbook.
