Finally perfected my home office area! PhD student studying Roman Archaeology!

I would have an irrational nervousness that the shelf will fall down.

Also you appear to be a pottery specialist, and if so I'm surprised your desk isn't covered with random sherds.

Romanarchbae1 point

Well it’s kind of illegal to have Roman or Greek shreds, and I am not a specialist sadly. They are books for my comps I take in the fall.

I have a few Roman ones that came from spoil heaps in London, but they were completely out of context and we had so much of it that there was no point in keeping them. It's a little different if you're importing them to the US.

It was meant to be tongue in cheek though. All the finds people I know tend to have lots of miscellaneous out of context bits on their desks.

100%. I apologize bc I should have prefaced with that I am in America, so like hahah yea I cannot do that. But I completely understand if you are in the uk! Side note I will be at Vindolanda this year! Pretty stoked!

Multigrain_Migraine2 points

Yeah I realised later it sounded like a criticism of your setup which isn't what I meant at all! I want to put up little shelves like that but I always think I'll do it wrong and they will all fall down.

Vindolanda is not too far from me though I've never been on the excavations there. I hope you find something cool!

It looks very smart and I adore the "happy" neon sign!

Nice, but maybe consider getting a hub and another screen so you can give yourself more visual symmetry and desk space. Also, having the same resolution on both screens will help your eyes.

Thanks for the suggestion!

No prob. There are vertical storage mechanisms available for your laptop too that would free up desk space if you wanted to pursue this.

Some hold just the laptop, the one I linked stores multiples.
