Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Roisin and I’m currently a third year PhD student at the University of Kent. I’ve had this website going on six years! You’ll find posts about my academic life and travels.
What’s been going on in my life…
It’s been a while since I last updated the blog (and believe me, I’ve want to write so much, but some reason there was always an excuse). So what have been up to the last 6 months? Find out…
April is going to be a busy month for me! I’m off on a number of travels which includes heading off to France: Poitiers and Carcassonne, as well as Iceland.
I did my first craft fair with the Artisans in the Palm House, Liverpool – here is a little review of how the day went and some photos.
All things academia…
In April I was lucky enough to be awarded with a scholar award to attend the British Archaeological Association’s Annual Romanesque Conference, which was held in Poitiers, France. Here are few images from two of the sites we visited: the Musée Sainte-Croix and Saint-Jean Baptistery.
Who would have thought it this time two years ago, after graduating from the University of York, I would be graduating with a Master’s degree from Oxford? I certainly didn’t.
An account of a recent research trip to the BNF in Paris to see a wonderful manuscript.
One of my passions is photography. You can see come of my work on my website or head over to my Flickr.
