Coal Mining and Rugby in Wales

Mountain Studies: Seven Sisters Rugby Project

In the summer of 2016, I participated in a short term study abroad program to Wales, UK. With nine other students and two professors, I learned about the history of coal mining in South Wales and its connection to the sport of rugby. We worked with the Seven Sisters Rugby Club and cultivated archival research to create a webpage about our findings. I specifically researched how rugby affected the Seven Sisters community.
