Autumn Archaeology in Randolph

October 22, 2014 | Ramblings | by Jamie Stott

I love archaeology most times of the year, but there is something about being outside during autumn that is just plain fantastic.

I’ve Been Here Before

May was touring colleges with her mother. She wasn’t entirely sure that she even wanted to go to college, but her mother was dead set on her going. Something about her being the first person in their family to go… Whenever her mother went on that rant, May politely tuned her out. She’d find something […]
