Brooke Mealey came to Menorca from Connecticut, USA. He has a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from the Southern Connecticut State University, and a MA in Archaeology from the University College of London (UCL). Brooke has spent two months in our school, combining some of our programs. She participated in the course in the Roman city and GIS, and she completed later two course sessions of underwater archaeology.

After finding online our school in Google, applying through our website and taking a flight with connections in London and Barcelona, Brooke arrived in Menorca. Her first impression was the same as most of our students received when they arrived for the first time. The beautiful landscape of Menorca, its turquoise beaches and coppery fields, leave no one indifferent.

From her stay she highlights the method used by the school and the teachers. In each of the three different groups in which she has been, there have been interesting situations and she has discovered new things. Now is clear that she wants to specialize in landscapes and underwater archaeology. The prospection in which she has collaborated closely in the Sanitja port has helped her to make the final choice.

At the request of highlighting some of her long stay, Brooke tells us that it is impossible to focus on anything, but certainly one of the most important points has been the team itself, with which she has discovered how exciting the work of an archaeologist can be.
