I’m going to become an archeologist!

Sorry I haven’t posted much lately, things have been busy. I’ve been making some major life changes. One of these is a decision to go back to college. It’s a bit scary thinking about this at 25, but I am confident that this is exactly where I need to be.

Next school year I will be starting university with a major in archeology. I can choose to focus more on anthropology or classics (Greece and Rome), I think I will favor classics. I will be taking as many medieval history classes as I can fit in. My goal is to get my masters and travel the world unveiling history.

This year I’ll take a single class each semester to get “back in the groove” of school so it’s not such a shock when I start full time studies. They also have a program where you can go to Greece or Rome for a month in the summer to study- I REALLY want to do that!! 😀

So all that being said, once I start classes I may begin posting some of the information I’m learning in class about ancient history and such. I hope you will enjoy it.

8 Surprising Historical Facts That Will Change Your Concept Of Time Forever

Not specifically Celtic or Medieval, but fascinating nonetheless- like France was still using the guillotine when Star Wars came out, and wooly mammoths still existed when the pyramids were built.

The slideshow at the bottom of the article has some fascinating historical myths too. I love learning something new! 🙂
