Moving to Swansea

The Meridian Tower and its reflection, Swansea

After a year living in London, and enjoying its multifarious opportunities, Tehmina and I have moved again. We have left the country. England, that is.

Our new home is Swansea, in Wales. Tehmina has started a new job at the University of Swansea’s Department of History and Classics looking at the “local and global worlds of Welsh copper”. I continue my role at Wessex Archaeology working remotely and travelling in to WA’s Salisbury headquarters a couple of times a month.

This is totally new territory for both of us, and we’re really enjoying Swansea so far. We are lucky enough to live close to the sea, and words cannot express how wonderful it is to see it every day.

A word of thanks must go out to the authors of the Living in Swansea blog for chronicling their experiences of moving to here, and for some reassuring replies to my comments!

I have also moved this blog away from a shared hosting environment to its own virtual server (OK, so still shared a bit). I am also going to make more time for writing. There’s something about being by the sea that makes me feel more creative!
