In the footsteps.. Talking to Dr Roy Jackson in Cordoba..

Ignoring the slightly excess background noise (school-kids!) – I ask Roy about why he has come to Cordoba to do research.

I am there as part of the HM5050 Humanities Second Year Field trip – with 24 students from RPE, History, etc! See pics from the trip HERE!
