ossamenta: Tanner from Medieval manuscript (Vitgarvare (Nürnberg 12brüderstiftung))

Today I got the response to the last of my three Ph.D. applications this year, and the answer was no. Still, from their comments, the only negative thing that was apparent was my small list of academic publications (one). I don't think I messed up the interview, even if I probably did some rabbit in headlight impressions when I got questions I never had considered (Do you see this as an article based Ph.D. or a monograph?).

Contrary to the archaeologists in Stockholm and the osteologists in Lund, the Laborative archaeologists in Stockholm didn't include the commentaries on all applications, so I can't tell whether everyone of us six who got to the interview stage was good (and one, obviously, outstanding), or whether my application were one of the weakest in comparison. Oh, well. Back to the drawing board and better luck next time. Still, there's still the job application to the National Board of Antiquities, which if I get it (*fingers crossed*) would get me back in Swedish osteology/archaeology, get me more money and thereby hopefully give me better opportunities to do some background research for a future Ph.D.

Next step is checking the archaeological background for my research towns (Greifswald, Stralsund and Rostock) and gather more information on everything. And of course, find the time to write academic publications.
