Dr Daniel King


I was trained as a Classicist in Australia (at the Australian National University), before moving to England for a mixture of personal and professional reasons. I completed a MA, in Classical Languages and Literature, at the University of Exeter; then went on to complete at DPhil at Merton College, Oxford. 

I play cricket and watch the game keenly. I enjoy travelling, and have long harboured a desire to travel through the Middle East and North Africa. In my spare time, I like to hang around in our kitchen cooking and chatting with family and friends.

I subsist on coffee, about which I am quite a snob, and crispy aromatic duck!
