I tell people: "I study ancient history and dead languages."

Sometimes, they ask, "Like Latin? Like the Roman Empire?"

I love to smirk, wave a hand dismissively, and say, "Too new."

Ah ha. That's like when people learn I work with computers and ask me "So do you prefer Mac or Windows?"

I have a friend in the UK who got a degree in ancient Icelandic so that she could read the sagas in their original form.
