So you might not be able to tell from all of the trips I’ve been taking, but I’ve actually been getting my Master’s degree here in Glasgow for the past year. I’ve been hard at work since April researching and writing my dissertation. I won’t bore you with the details, but I’m studying archaeology and museums. I’ve been able to do some pretty cool stuff with that, including helping on excavations and running my own museum exhibit! I’m really proud of the work I’ve done, so I just wanted to share some picture about it!
Part of my project was to interview and survey volunteers on archaeology projects, but that also meant I got to go out into the field and get my hands dirty!
The main part of my project was to design and put on a small exhibit in the local town to promote and educate people about the archaeological work in the area. It all came together really well and I hope that future excavations try to do something similar!
Is anyone else interested in museums and archaeology? If you want to hear more about my project, I’d love to get in touch with you!
