Ma profession History and ESOL teacher
Ma bio I worked for 30 years as a defense consultant and military historian before taking early retirement and becoming a high school history and ESOL teacher. I started traveling to historic sites with my parents and I've been taking photos of my travels since I was 8 years old. I've been a part-time freelance photographer (mainly sports) for 10 years and have coached soccer teams for 20 years.

Contrary to what I learned in school in the 50s, these were densely settled areas with advanced civilizations and forms of government.

What they didn't have was: horses, steel (swords, armor, etc.), and, maybe most important, immunity to smallpox.
