It’s Official – Nicaragua!
Last Friday, I met with one of my archaeology professors for lunch to talk about his project in Nicaragua. There’s a small site he’s been working on down there and he usually takes a mix of graduate and undergraduate students down there for digging & finds processing.
A few weeks ago, I submitted one of my last ceramic analysis lab reports for his classes. The subject was on cataloguing and documenting ceramic decorations. Since I photograph everything and am not terribly good at drawing, I decided to photograph the samples I had for part of the report.
Apparently, my professor was impressed with my photos and his dig is in need of an artifact photographer, so he’s offered me a spot on the team. So, I’m officially going to be headed to Nicaragua this July.
I’m so excited! This is a fantastic opportunity and I cannot wait!
