A student again!

So, today I begin life as a student again. I begin my PhD research on public perceptions of the Mesolithic at York University under Nicky Milner. It really is exciting. The topic is set by Nicky – it’s a collaborative doctoral award, so fully funded and run jointly between the University and York Archaeological Trust. I’ve been doing a lot of reading to get up to date with the Mesolithic. In some ways, not a lot has changed. In other ways, it has. Some new sites and finds, some new theoretical approaches. It’s so good to be getting back to grips with prehistory though, and to have three years to do something in-depth again. Bliss! I suspect I shall need extra supplies of chocolate to fuel my brain cells. I know a few of the folk at York, and am looking forward to getting the know the rest.
