(also its 2am and its haunting me pls dont question this)
(can i have a story or a tv series depicting this familial mess)
the best part of any fic is the mandatory john and greg go down to the pub to bitch about their respective significant holmeses
(bonus points if the holmes brothers are doing the same thing to their significant others)
ohtrumu said: Hi! I plan on taking archeology for university, but worried I need to have a basis on history. Regardless of this, how are archaeology classes like? Do you get to go on expeditions to archaeology sites? Thank you in advance!
im not very clued up on how it runs in universties since im just at a sixth form college, but i’ll try it anyway since the college is one of the top in the country and pushes us extra far. the work is interesting and open if a little on the heavy side. like, there’s always something to latch on to, and the coursework is very freeing and independant but it doesnt have to be, there’s the opportunity to get help when you ask.
i’ll say again it isn’t easy and the work load is tough but it’s an amazing subject and is definitely worth it.
as for the history thing it definitely helps to have background knowledge but since the subject is so broad (at a level my college takes everyone from human evolution to early modern) that it doesn’t really matter. for university courses, one of my lecturers was talking about her experience going from the college (she’s an ex student at cirencester) to exeter, and she says it helps to have an area of interest because the degree topics let you narrow down to your own thing. the other lecturer says pretty much the same; he’s very knowledgeable about every period we cover but his absolute favourite is the dark ages, saxons and vikings and he leads that history topic as well.
trips and fieldwork are obviously very important. the a level has a segment a year on practical archaeology; an exam and a personal study. training in the field is key to understanding so a lot of outside work is standing around a dumpy scale or farting about with beeping machines and flags, but the contextual work is absolutely incredible. i can hands down say that the northumbria trip i was on was one of the best weeks of my life, and apparently thats a boring one. my lecturers try to get us out in the field as much as possible and it’s always worth the angry mooching in the gross minibuses. im not sure how trips run on the university front but i’d be surprised if there were none at all.
it’s definitely worth checking into it properly to see if its your thing but if its anything like how the a levels are taught then go for it 100%
Oh gosh thanks for replying! Archaeology seems pretty tough but I hope I’ll be able to manage. I’m told that archaeology is very theoretical compared to history, and from what you say, both subjects seem extremely broad. But its too dang interesting to pass up and I’m definitely going to try it out in uni.
