Athens of the North
Isabel Hariades traces her life in history publishing back to a rich education in Edinburgh and Greece.
History comes to a child, or did to me, almost imperceptibly through place and circumstance. I was born in Edinburgh and brought up twelve miles south of the city. Later more distant regions were to project me into different past eras, through random developments, when study and interest provided a structure and historical points to which I could comfortably refer.
