Paul Joseph De Mola, FRGS, is a First Class Honours and Distinction Graduate of the School of Archaeology and Ancient History at the University of Leicester in England.

Paul is currently a preparatory teacher of Medieval History and Geography at an inner-city school.
His principle areas of interest are Roman Republican, Western Imperial, and early Barbarian history, archaeology, and politics, as well as Classical philology. He has broad secondary interests in the archaeology of Early Bronze Age Mesopotamia, and the political history of Middle Kingdom-Second Intermediate Period Ancient Egypt, as well as general interests in both Classic and Postclassic Mesoamerican sociopolitical structures.
