Has this programme impacted your personal or professional life? If so, how?
YES! In addition to approving my archaeology skills, I have made lifetime friends, was able to practice my language skills, and have received so much help in the graduate school application process. I also found a site for my future studies!

The focus of this research is the study of domestic areas in order to obtain information about different aspects of ancient daily life. Two successful field season (2015 and 2016) revealed that residents at this site had access to cultural ideas from the Wari Polity (600 – 1000 A.D.). For this reason the study of households offer a unique opportunity to observe how people negotiate their identity while acquiring new cultural ideas through inter-regional exchange.
