Hi Blog Followers 🙂

Well, as sad it is our time here in the UK has come to an end. Six weeks seemed to just fly by in the blink of an eye! I think it is safe to say that this has been an experience like no other; as we were cleaning up after our final day of excavation it was hard not to feel a quite sad and nostalgic as we thought about all the wonderful memories we have made here. It has been six weeks of amazing day trips, gorgeous scenery,  fascinating lectures and lessons, and once in a lifetime opportunities, but I have to say what made this trip so special was the people. For ten people who started off this trip as virtual strangers it is amazing how close we have become; and it was not only the students that made this trip, it was also our wonderful professors, Beth and Alex, as well as the entire executive team at Vindolanda and the many volunteers we were fortunate enough to have met along the way. A special thanks to Andy, Kate, and Justin from Vindolanda for without their friendly attitude and endless patients with us first time diggers this experience would not have been half as fun 🙂 I think it is safe to say that even if all of us do not become archaeologists it will always be a hobby of ours! And thank-you to you, our loyal blog followers that have been with us every step of the way, without you we would have just been posting into cyber space! So as sad as it is to say; this is Mary of the 2nd Cohort of Canadians, signing off 🙂Mary in the rain
