Working Hard

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!

Learning Glasgow

Hi and welcome to Learning Glasgow! For the next year or so, this blog will be dedicated to my shenanigans in figuring out a brand new city. I wanted to start this blog not only so friends and family could keep up with my travels, but also because I wanted to provide helpful info for others planning a similar journey.

So a bit of background, I am a twenty-something archaeology buff from Pittsburgh, PA who decided to tackle a Master’s degree in Museum Studies. Except I decided to do something a bit crazy and do my degree abroad. After months of applications and stress, I accepted a spot in the MSc in Museum Studies at the University of Glasgow.

So for the next year, I hope to record my adventures and provide some helpful hints for anyone in a similar boat! Thanks for visiting.
