Title: A Pilgrimage Through Time


A Pilgrimage Through Time is a book composed of images and information about many different pilgrimages all over the world. The writing includes factual information about many different journeys as well as my own personal experience hiking a part of the Appalachian Trail. My project was centered on the evolution of the pilgrimage and what this reflects about how our societies have developed. I explored ancient journey from the Hajj to the walkabout of the Australian aboriginal cultures. Overall, my project examines what a pilgrimage is exactly and what motivates people to undertake such a journey.
