Looking at some beads from Orkney - some are possibly Scandinavian, some are possibly Irish, but some are just strange!

I've been accepted to study for a PhD in Celtic and Viking Archaeology at the University of Glasgow! The problem is that I need help with funding. If you're interested in helping out in any way, check out my fundrazr page!

If you can't help out monetarily, I completely understand.  Please just take the time to reshare or +1 this post to help with publicity!

I am currently completing an MLitt in Celtic and Viking Archaeology at the University of Glasgow and have been accepted to continue for a PhD.  Being an international student (I'm from the US) means that there is very little funding available ...

Quiet After the Storm

Taken in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The storm had passed by the evening, but the power was still out (and would be for about two weeks).

(This was also the first time I used my Nikon D3100, and it's still one of my favorite shots.)

Redwoods

Shot these on a pretty foggy/misty day at Mount Tamalpais State Park. I love the eeriness the mist brought to the trees...

I just got an email saying that, contrary to what the previous email said, the college made a mistake and I am still in the running for the college scholarship! The good news is that, if I do end up getting this, tuition will be covered. BUT, I will still need help with research costs, living expenses, and travel to and from various sites and museums in order to do my research, which means I still definitely need help!
