Hi, I'm Ellie! I'm an ancient historian who looks at the way people in ancient Greece practised their religion. I'm at the tail end of writing a book about how people build relationships with Underworld gods.

On YouTube, my blog, and on Twitter, I chart my journey from an unemployed, newly-minted PhD to (hopefully!) a permanent academic job. I make weekly vlogs, 'how to' videos, videos about early career academia and academic precarity, mental health, and self care.
