March 2023 - The Orkney Islands
Where it All Began: The oldest constructed homes in northern Europe, The Orkney Islands. Thom Jones will be walking around Orkney, looking at some key sites and structures from the over 6,000 years of its human settlement. Over three days we’ll do live Q&A with students, teachers, and friends. We’ll be following the Erasmus themes of identity and frontiers and looking at historical and modern perceptions of both. And camping in this UNESCO world heritage site. There will be musings about how and why people choose to live in such a remote area and what day-to-day life there is actually like.
