Welcome, thank you for visiting Julia Herdman Books

Please come in and look around.

You will find lots of interesting articles on my blog on all sorts of historical subjects.


I write History, Archaeology and Historical Fiction 

I am particularly interested in womens’ experience of health, politics , work and the family in the 18th and 19th centuries.

My fiction is based on the history of medicine in London, Edinburgh and Paris in the 18th and early 19th centuries.

I also write on ancient history, women in ancient history and on ancient Egypt, the gods and the ancient Egyptian religion.
