About

Oliver D. Smith: classicist, independent researcher

I have an A-Level and BA (Hons) in Classical Civilisation from National Extension College (2007-08) and Roehampton University (2010-13); currently studying for a PG Cert in Humanities & MA in Classical Studies from Open University (2018-20). I wrote my BA dissertation on Atlantis and have published in Shima, contributing to their special journal issue "Submergence: Atlantis and Related Mythologies" (2016) and I have reviewed a submission to the journal. My main research interests include places in Greek mythology (e.g. Erytheia), ancient necromancy (e.g. Necromanteion, katabasis) and ancient island utopias (e.g. Atlantis, Panchaea). In 2017, I created The Atlantis Wiki. A bookworm, you can find me on Good Reads, while on Quora and Reddit I answer questions about Greek myths. I have accounts on Twitter, Gab (not too active), Patreon, Tumblr and Facebook; in the past I've translated ancient Greek at Translatum-LSJ. My hobbies are (video) gaming, bookbinding and creating music.
