It has been an amazing 6 months. Yes, it went faster than we expected. Sweden is such a beautiful country with a rich and exciting history. As mentioned in our “What Have We Learned?” post, this experience has solidified many of my UCSD lessons and given me a taste of what it’s like to be far away from home for a relatively long period of time. We’ve already summarized what we have learned and posted our reflections, so I’ll just thank all of you readers for following along! 😀 We are so excited to go home; but we will definitely keep Sweden in our hearts.
Although it will be several years before we take another trip, this blog will continue to function as a means to communicate my work and progress in archaeology. If you are interested in learning about my ongoing studies, work, and current news in the field of archaeology and anthropology, continue to follow along! 🙂
I want to extend a heartfelt and special thanks to the Gilman Scholarship Program and the Swedish Women’s Educational Association for their generous support. If there are any undergraduate readers out there, I strongly recommend studying abroad in Sweden! If you do, visit the links above and visit your campus study abroad office to apply for those scholarships. Sweden has so much to offer everyone. As you’ve read on this blog, there is a tremendous amount of archaeological sites and museums to visit. Lund University also offers unique opportunities to students from various fields. A couple of my fellow exchange students each had the opportunity to work full-time in labs for course credit! I believe one was working in Chemistry and the other in Neurology. Consider studying abroad in Sweden. You won’t regret it! 🙂 Even for those who are not in college, spend a week or two in Lund! You can travel the Skåne region and across to southern Denmark with ease. The public transportation system here is fantastic and allows the travelers to get the most out of their visits.
Thank you, Sweden, for an enriching learning experience! 🙂
your friendly neighborhood archaeologist ♥
