This happy face belongs to Nadia Messina, our latest ERASMUS colleague from Italy. ERASMUS is an EU programme which helps higher education students live and work abroad for up to twelve months, thus extending their studies and learning a new language while contributing to their place of work in a new country.

Nadia, 25, hails from Syracuse (Siracusa) in Sicily, not far from a smoking Mount Etna. She studied Archaeology at Siena University in another beautiful part of that country, Tuscany. How she must be missing that weather! Nadia is working with the Portable Antiquities Scheme under the watchful eyes of Richard Henry and Fiona Johnstone. She will return to Italy hoping for work in her chosen profession.

Welcome Nadia!
