About & Contact

My name is Carole Raddato, I am French and I live in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. My favourite hobby is travelling and for the last 15 years, I have taken a huge interest in the history of the ancient world. I usually don’t do things by halves, so I have dedicated all my free time to this passion. I love to share with other history fans all the incredible facts and stories that I discover throughout my journeys. I am neither a professional photographer nor an ancient history scholar, but I hope that everybody can enjoy my photos.

I am particularly interested in everything related to the emperor Hadrian whom I find fascinating. He was himself an incessant traveller, visiting almost every province in the Empire during his reign. When I am looking for new ideas for my travels I usually take inspiration from his journeys and it is a great motivation for me to follow him in his footsteps. Like Hadrian, I like to see things for myself, to go where the events happened, to be on the spot. This is how Hadrian ran his empire.

With my Hadrian 1900 project starting in 2017, I intend to reserve this blog for Hadrian related content while I will use my new blog Following Hadrian Photography to cover all the other places I have visited. The focus of my new blog is on photography rather than text. Following Hadrian Photography will always be a work in progress and new archaeological sites and museums will be added on a regular basis.
