So I am currently sitting on a train to Glasgow, however we have been delayed! It is seriously because someone in Darlington, at the station is running around naked… The north is interesting! J Anyway, I look back at the tour, already, with a kind of nostalgia. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and enjoying spending time with the people I had made friends with. However, I am disappointed that the archaeology of Sheffield was not touched upon much. Sheffield is a goldmine for industrial archaeology, and that type of study blows my mind. It is amazing. I am disappointed we didn’t get to look into that further. However, as a history student as well, I was impressed. I do believe a few things could have been better organised, I know things can go wrong, but overall, I think it did need some more organisation. I was surprised how exhausting the entire two weeks was, some days I knew would be very full on, it is what I had expected for a 30-credit subject, but I didn’t take into account how exhausted I would be. Nevertheless, the study tour was fantastic.
