is that where you found your interest in history 24?

I took a classical history course as an elective in grade 9, just because I was an Asterix fan.

I think my interest in history comes from my father. When I was at School, studying for a history test was a matter of reading the chapter and then sitting down with him to chat about history. Asterix came later, and I think my interests in history and Asterix fed off each other. To everyone's puzzlement my father never reads Asterix.
