Today was graduation day for University of Manchester Archaeology students. It was a glorious hot sunny day and it was lovely to see students with their proud families and friends. Some of our team were graduating including Sarah Paris, Jamie Skuse, and Adelle Caldwell. In addition to these BA (Hons) students one of our supervisors, Kat Fennelly, was getting her PhD for a great thesis on early nineteenth-century asylums in Britain and Ireland. We’re very proud of them all!
A number of the graduates bought their families and friends to Whitworth Park to show them what they had been working on for the last two weeks. Here’s a photo of Sarah (looking somewhat more glamorous than she usually does on site!) with her mum and dad.
