This is my first blog and it is being written shortly after submitting my level one DL Classical Archaeology essay. It is always a strange feeling to have finished a module, a mixture of relief that it was submitted on time, and satisfaction in a job well done (fingers crossed.) Soon the fear/excitement about the mark will manifest itself, but not yet!
So what to do with the three weeks until the postman brings the Medieval Archaeology module? I would love to get out to Croxton Kerrial to carry on digging the Medieval Manorial complex but, the weather is unlikely to be that kind.
I still have my full time day job to do but, the chance to rest and recuperate from my studies is compelling and I believe, extremely important. I have the privilege to be the course rep for the Archaeology DL students and we have a meeting on January 20th at Leicester to look forward to. It is always good to visit the campus and put faces to names!
Another vital task for my wife and I is to plan our holidays for this year. Lasts years visits to Rome, Venice and the Emperor Diocletian’s retirement palace at Split in Croatia via a Cruise holiday will take some beating…but we shall try!
I hope you continue to follow my blogs as I progress on my fascinating journey as a University of Leicester, DL Archaeology student.
