Welcome to my Art and Architecture Worlds website, dedicated to an appreciation of great architecture, art, archaeological sites, and the adventures of travel. You can keep up with my travels with Smithsonian Journeys and Zegrahm Expeditions through those links, and with my independent travels on by travel blog on this site. I’ll be exploring  Italy, Spain, Portugal and the countries of the Baltic Sea region in the spring of 2017. See the Contact page if you want to get ahold of me. It’s always great to hear from fellow travelers! Note that I've taken all of the photographs on my travel blog and never use material I haven't generated myself.

If you want any of my books—or books with my articles in them—see my author’s page on Amazon (click here). Most of my academic articles are available, however, on this page as free downloadable .pdfs (click here). My most recent book, Palermo: Travels in the City of Happiness, is out in Kindle e-book and paperback versions, both available through Amazon. 

The Stones of Famagusta Documentary

If you’d like a DVD of my documentary film The Stones of Famagusta: the Story of a Forgotten City (70 min; 2008) click here. To see a 7-minute sample trailer for the film  on YouTube, click here. For a general factsheet about the film click here. If you are interested in Famagusta, you'll also be interested in Dan Frodsham's wonderful film on the restoration of the Forty Martyrs of Sebaste in the church of St Peter and Paul and Famagusta.
