We recently sat down for a chat with Dr. Andy Souter, who will be leading a number of our departures throughout the year, and he filled us in on his academic journey, passions and interests.
Hi Andy, tell us a bit about yourself!
Hello there! My name is Dr. Andrew Philip Souter. I’m a lecturer and researcher within the field of Roman Archaeology and for the past six years I’ve been teaching at the University of Reading. I’ve also recently started leading tours with Andante, including those in Italy, Spain and Portugal. I really enjoy the responsibility of the role and find it challenging and rewarding – I’ve personally found it particularly interesting to learn how to lecture while “on the move” rather than standing next to a big PowerPoint screen! The tours provide a great opportunity to explore some amazing archaeology and see some fantastic material - we visit many different sites, primarily from the Roman era, and also prehistoric and medieval!
