Hello world! I, Elizabeth Clark, have arrived in Haltwhistle and could not be more excited to spend the next five weeks knee deep in history with the Vindolanda team.
As my time at Western finally comes to an end this fall, this course marks a fitting finale to what has been a wonderful university experience. I have been a varsity swimmer for all five years, and in October will be graduating with an Honours Specializations in both business and history, with the latter a particular passion of mine. One of the reasons I enjoy studying the subject is because I believe we’re living history everyday and it’s always important that individuals continue to explore and understand the past to help us better tackle the future. For me, that journey of discovery will begin here at Vindolanda. Armed with my trowel, aquatic skills in the case of England’s finest rainy deluge, and a sunny smile, let the digging begin!
