Out there in Jutland
In the old man-killing parishes
I will feel lost,
Unhappy and at home.
– Seamus Heaney (1975)
Ad Caledonia – To Scotland. It’s Latin.
* ON HIATUS UNTIL AUGUST 2020 *
Hello, I’m Kennedy.
In 2015, I left Kansas and moved to Scotland to study History and Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh. I graduated with a First in 2019.
I’m currently living in America before returning to Scotland in August 2020.
In Scotland, I met amazing friends, joined the Edinburgh Uni Mountaineering Club, worked on excavations including Neolithic settlements in Romania, Medieval castles and kirkyards in the UK, and examined the skeletal remains from a Roman trade city in Italy. I have volunteer experience at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and the National Museum of Scotland.
Eventually, I wish to translate the complexities of history to the general public in new and exciting ways. I love seeing people engage with history and a big part of my life has been dedicated to helping history and archaeology come alive.
This blog is for the people who put up with my incessant complaining.
