This has been a complicated week here at Archaeology of the Mediterranean World Headquarters. I’ve been writing frantically, then watching the cricket world cup, and thinking about Sunday’s Daytona 500, and keeping an Cyclone Marcia, while tending to a crazy yellow dog with an injured tail. When you have a 2 year old yellow dog, it is impossible to “limit his activity.”
That all being said, I can see the faint light at the end of the tunnel and am looking forward to a trip to Boston next week for the Mobilizing the Past for the Digital Future workshop and catching up with some friends. Now I just need to finish that paper…
In the meantime, enjoy some varia and quick hits and hopes for a less eventful (but no less entertaining weekend):
- Anthony Kaldelis on how the Byzantines were Romans.
- 3D Athena Nike!
- Photos from inside Tut’s tomb.
- The Domus Aurea reopens.
- ISIS antiquities smugglers.
- A tribute to Tony Wilkinson.
- Read this on the situation in Greece.
- Where are the women archaeologists?
- The future of archaeology in a globalized world from Antiquity.
- I am shocked that the Bible Lands Museum could be at the center of controversy.

- On a similar note, Zane Lowe is leaving the BBC for Apple, which will not necessarily help the situation noted here.

Is it playtime, NOW?
