Field Trip to Roman Ruins & British Pub Life

Yesterday we had a guest lecturer come in to give us a precursor to our course. In an hour, she attempted to cover 6000 years of history, ending at the point of the time period we’re going to study. Covering 6000 years of history in an hour is no mean feat, but she managed it. It was helped in the afternoon by a field trip, where we went to see what’s left of an old Roman city, Caistor St. Edmunds, illustrating the exact things we’d been learning about in the classroom that day.

Unfortunately my phone went on strike after I tried to take photo #3000, so I only got a couple of photos of the field trip site. This photo doesn’t show any of the cool old walls, but it does show the pretty English countryside that we were in!


That night, the university organized a British BBQ at a local pub for us international summer school students. After a brief stint there, enjoying the free burgers, me and a few friends set out to explore another bar, Gonzo’s, that we’d heard good things about. Gonzo’s turned out to be wonderfully spunky, and we spent a good couple hours there before heading back to the uni for the night.
