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 ...

Small Packages

Is it just me, or do they look a little like jellyfish?

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!

As some of you know, I am an archaeologist working to get my MLitt and PhD at the University of Glasgow.  As an international student, this can be quite a tricky endeavor to fund, so I'm trying crowd-funding.  Take a look if you're interested!

Introduction
I am a 24 year-old archaeologist working primarily in the British Isles, though from 2009 to 2013 I worked in Southeast Asia. I’m currently in Glasgow studying for an MLitt in Celtic and Viking Archaeology.

My primary focus is on interaction in western Britain during the first millennium AD, particularly through the exchange and distribution of beads.  While I work with mostly British material, I am comparing it to Irish, Roman, Scandinavian, and other assemblages as well as constantly keeping the Asian material on my mind.  My research seeks to understand the nature of interaction within western Britain and further afield as evidenced by patterns in the distribution of glass beads.  My hope is to deepen our understanding of intercultural interaction and the roles played by western British populations in this period.

I run two blogs: Rantin' and Rovin', which is a general archaeology travel blog, and Stringing the Past, which is more specific to my own research.  Please feel free to check them out!
