About Ellie Mackin Roberts

Hello! I’m Ellie. I'm a mid-30s, mother of one kid and two cats, a runner, a painter... and I'm about to embark on a huge life change - from academia (I'm an ancient historian by trade) to... something else. To kickstart this I'm going back to uni: to SOAS in London to undertake an MSc in Violence, Conflict, and Development. I’m interested in Persia and Iran, and the intersection of development and heritage. I make YouTube videos about life as an early career academic and I'll be vlogging my life back at uni! I'll be posting regular updates here about what I'm learning and doing and how life has changed for me during the upcoming year and beyond. If you sign up to be a regular supporter you'll get access to loads of stuff, both from my ancient history life and my Development life. This is a scary and exciting time for me, so I hope you'll come on this journey with me!
