By N.S. Gill:

I hope to help spread the updated classical seed far abroad.

Like the inside of a seed, there is now a full-grown plant waiting to bloom -- in you. Most of the information I am providing is basic (never really "all there is to know about X, Y, or Z"), and often simplified. Especially in citations, you will find many ideas for further reading in the articles I submit, but if you want more, and don't want to go looking all over the place (starting with figuring out what to hunt for in JSTOR and L'Année philologique) for yourself, here is one simple tip:

Look at the bibliographies for general topics in the Cambridge Ancient History.
