Congratulations on your terminal degree (highest degree awarded in your academic field).

Make sure that your family, friends, and colleagues are aware to place a coin in your doctoral hood at the hooding ceremony.

Doctoral hoods in academic dress are not worn as head wear, but have been worn since ancient times for collecting alms given to scholars to support their studies. In other words, it's your own personal walking endowment collection bin. This is why the doctoral hood has a special curve at the bottom. It's to catch coins.

tdziemia, The job search could take me pretty much anywhere. Just a matter of if I can find one and get it.

I do know about the ancient and medieval subforums, but I don't really have a great deal of expertise in that area. I've got a couple coins that qualify, though.

Nice!! I never thought to treat myself to a coin for obtaining PhD (I did buy myself a really good bottle of single malt whisky, however....)

You might still have the coin then.
