One of my extracurricular loves, aside from teaching, is my love of archaeology.
At this moment in time, these are my three favorite places to dig deep and delve for nibbits of information so that I can understand the beginnings of another’s life and culture:
The Igbo People at the 1700 West African Farm at the Frontier Culture Museum. This is a living-history exhibit. The guides are VERY knowledgeable and always have answers for my questions or they can refer me to the sources to find each answer.
When I have a Saturday/ Sunday free, you will find me preparing my new research questions, packing a day-lunch for a hike, and driving to one of these places.
To immerse myself for four or five hours in the culture and times of another people is both intriguing and inspiring.
Written for The Daily Post: Immerse. I have been having problems finding something of meaning to create an answer for the prompts this year. So I decided to strengthen and tighten my focus. My topics for the month of March are as follows: (Monday) Teaching and Life; (Tuesday) Hobbies: Archaeology and Astronomy; (Wednesday) Fitness; (Thursday) Chores; (Friday) Writing; (Saturday) Hobbies: Music and Photography; and (Sunday) Hobbies: Gardening and Birdwatching.
