As the title says – digital archaeology – you can do it from home and boy has that come in handy. I gave birth to my first daughter in January this year and was awarded the grand total of zero maternity leave, despite living in Denmark (one of the countries in the world where you get the most parental leave).
But since my speciality is digital archaeology I have still been able to keep working on my projects and my Phd. On Monday I am starting work (out of the house work) on the Alken Enge project. I am doing a swap with my husband (who can get paternity leave) – so mommy is going back to work!
Today is actually my last work-from-home day in a while and Bess is sleeping right next to me, letting me get on with #dayofarch and the work I need to look at today.
My agenda for today is:
- Look at my powerpoint for my Digital Humanities 2012 conference presentation in 3 weeks in Hamburg.
- Get ready for Monday and the Alken Enge project.
- Do some work on the APPELLO web service I have been developing for years. At the moment I am getting it to work with the MAMA XI manuscripts.
Will I get around it all today? Depends on how long Bess is going to sleep for.
