With yesterday’s springlike weather, I’ve started to count down the days to the end of the semester (and my sabbatical beyond). My students aren’t helping by noting that “after spring break, the semester is basically over.” There are six weeks left!
More to the point, I have three substantial projects that are due by the end of the semester, so I can’t afford to relax yet.
I can, however, allow myself a little distraction with some quick hits and varia.
- A Call for Paper for the 2015 Archaeological Institute of America meeting: Byzantine Maritime Technology and Trade.
- On a related note, gender disparities in the archaeology based on the 2014 Archaeological Institute of America’s Annual Meeting.
- Micoarchaeology in Israel.
- From museums to mosques in Turkey.
- One more Call for Papers: The Senses and Aesthetics in Archaeological Science.
- More on the destruction of Syria’s archaeological heritage.
- And along similar lines, the cats of Istanbul.
