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.

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 First Class Honours in 2019.
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.
I’m currently living in America before returning to Scotland in September 2020 for an MSc in Architectual Conservation.
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.
