HISTORY AND CULTURE TRAVEL
Ancient languages, fabulous gods, heroes and demons can all be discovered in our past. The places we visit now are just the top layer of thousands of years of human civilization. So why just visit one culture, when you can take an archaeology of travel?
We know and judge many historical civilizations by the architectural feats they leave behind. From the builders of the parthenon, to modern masters like Antoni Gaudi and Oscar Niemayer, travel is always inspiring and sometimes the architecture of other peoples, places and the past can be the thing we remember the most.
ART AND SCULPTURE
From prehistoric objects, to tribal art, modern art and visual culture, there is always art on display when you travel. Just like with language and architecture, seeing local art and sculpture when we travel lets us know what is important to the lives of the locals we meet.
CULTURE THROUGH FOOD
Anthropologists have been studying food for two centuries now. Food shows love, power, prosperity, prowess, social class and understandings of community and belonging. It helps constructs identities and its an important part of the how societies create memories.
HISTORIC SITES AND CITIES
Not all cities and sites have to be ancient to be layered in history and memories. The last 1000 years of human history has involved so much war, fortifications and memorials but it is also bursting with art, architecture, inventions and awe inspiring cityscapes.
