Exciting Class!

So before I get into it a little background info, I go to Trent University it has a main campus in Peterborough ( about an hour away) and then they also have a newly built smaller campus here in Oshawa, it was built last summer. I went to the main campus my first year and stayed on residence but last year I decided to stay home and go to Trent in Oshawa. I am doing my third year in Oshawa too but will probably have to move out and go back to peterborough for the next year because being a new campus there is not enough classes to get my degree here. Anyway I started off doing a double major in biology and environmental science with my career goal( since I was a kid) being wildlife biologist/zoologist well this past year I decided to take intro to anthropology just as a fun random course, just to get a credit basically, and I FELL IN LOVE!!! 1 random first year anthro course turned into a 3rd year Peoples of the Pacific Oceania course, I switched my major to Biology and anthropology, and took 2nd year biological anthropology this summer ( the course just ended). This school year I am taking 4 anthropology courses and 3 bio courses. Sorry for the story

Now for the fun bit I am doing an archeological dig in a week:excited: Its a new course at our school, the professor only allowed 14 people into the class, and its 2 weeks starting august 22nd mon-fri 9 am-4pm. We are excavating around a historic house down at the lake( there are 3 houses down there from the mid 1800's). I am beyond excited! So we are excavating at one of the houses called Henry House from 1850 and the course extends into the fall semester where we will clean and catalog our finds at the schools lab. Then the artefacts will go to the Oshawa Historical Society to be displayed in the house ( the houses are now used as a museum) I know it will be hard work, sweaty, and dirty and all that but I am excited to see what we find and learn how a real dig works, considering I will have to choose between biologist and archeologist in the future.
Heres some info on the houses
Heres Henry House sorry the pics are pretty bad quality it was night when I took them.

and here are the other two houses

Anyway sorry I practically wrote a book I will keep you guys updated on the experience in a weeks time! Thanks for reading.
