Mark is interested in art and architecture, and especially ancient pottery and what these everyday objects can reveal about past lives and traditions. Other interests include maritime history, exploration and polar history. Having lived for several years in France and the Czech Republic, been a frequent visitor to Greece, and now based in Italy, he is a great believer in Jacque-Yves Cousteau's maxim: Il Faut aller voir - we must go and look for ourselves - and hopes his articles and photos will inspire visitors to WHE to do the same.
