As a young beast, Hector liked nothing more than wallowing in the cool mud, listening to his grand-beasts talking about the way the river used to be when they were young. Hector was fascinated by the idea that life in the river had not always been the way it was today.
Growing older, Hector learned that there were many more ways to learn about the past. He needed to read books, study artefacts and visit historic sites! He couldn't do that from the river, so he packed his bag, said goodbye and set off to become a real historian.
Many years later, Hector is still enjoying amazing adventures. He has learned that there are many different stories behind every event in History and that he needs to explore them all before he can really understand the past. He has also discovered that there are many misconceptions and misunderstandings about the past and is passionate about debunking them all!
In his spare time, Hector still likes to take mud baths and remember the days when he listened to his grand-beasts in the river. He drops them a postcard every now and again to tell them about his adventures and to thank them for inspiring his lifelong love of learning.
