Hello, all!

Happy orientation week! My name is Sarah Bentley, and I’ll be going into my third year at Western to pursue a major in Classics and a minor in Greek and Roman Archaeology. It’s been a dream of mine for quite some time to one day work in the archaeological field, so field school for me has been a dream come true! I’m excited to learn the methodology of excavation and the history of Northern England, my family’s origin.

Atop the fort wall reconstruction at Vindolanda

I’ve been getting my bearings over the past few days, and the beautiful weather has helped me immensely! The entire experience has been like something out of a fairy tale, complete with fairy tale creatures. The lovely folks at White Craig Cottages have the friendliest animals and friendly animals are a fantastic cure for jet lag.

We’ll get back to you soon with our first hike along the wall! All the best.
