It has been a while! I have not blogged since August last year. Its been a hectic year for me; working towards getting PhD funding and ultimately being unsuccessful, trying to get long term work in museums or archaeology and again being unsuccessful. I know that sounds like a lot of negative but its been a good year too, I got engaged, have had some wonderful experiences and discussions with archaeologists from across the globe and visited some excellent museum exhibitions.
It may take me some time to get back to regular blogging but I will be trying hard to post something at least once a month. In the transition from a tumblr to this Squarespace blog some of the older posts, especially the review of the Monasticism conference from 2014 got lost. Thankfully that one is archived on the blog of Assemblage the Graduate Journal of Archaeology at the University of Sheffield.
