I did it! 6 modules and an essay since Friday – its my own fault for falling behind so I’m not complaining.
In fact I feel as if my brain is rejuvenated. Its wonderful.
I have to wait until September to start more archaeology or history courses – there are so many to choose from. Oxford University are doing Indian Art, Romans in Britain and Islamic Art and Architecture. I’ve just completed Ritual and Religion in Prehistory and hopefully gained my 10 CATS points. I hear there maybe a Prehistoric Art module coming up. I want to do them all.
Leicester have these modules; They are longer, being 20 CATS points.
Aims and Methods in Archaeology
Introduction to Classical Archaeology
Historical (Post-Medieval and Industrial) Archaeology
The Archaeology of Egypt, Nubia and the Middle Nile
The Prehistory and Medieval units really appeal. Am I doing this for myself or towards a degree? Not sure. I do wonder if I should have read humanities and not science at university 20 years ago. I am a chameleon liking science, humanities and art. Or maybe I am just interested in everything????
Over the summer I’m going to complete the History of Art Diploma – that’s harder because there are no deadlines. The subject matter is fascinating and not at all hard. I need a deadline.
I like challenging my brain – its been in hibernation far too long (since childbirth I guess).
So, here is my scrapbook from France. I didn’t have time to sit and write long entries or to sketch or draw. Those days also disappeared with childbirth. Guess they will come back all too soon. I had fun with the Pogo printer, Sizzix cutter, double sided sticky tape and a concertina sketchbook (Seawhites). Before I went away I gave the pages a wash with Brusho inks in in Leaf Green, Yellow and Turquoise.
