It’s been a pretty exciting week at Archaeology of the Mediterranean World headquarters. We saw the first sustained snow, I started pecking away at a long overdue project, wrapped up a conference paper (next week!), published a collection of reprints from North Dakota Quarterly, and watched the start of David Warner’s mighty double century.
Despite all the excitement, I have had some time to grab a gaggle of quick hits and varia.
- New and Improved (and updated) Punk Archaeology.
- A 3D plan of the theater (thats theatre from you commonwealth types) at Paphos.
- Theodoros Rakopoulos and Heath Cabot discuss Solidarity in Greece.
- Efforts to use digital technology (beep, boop, boop, boop) on the Herculaneum scrolls.
- Disturbing news concerning the Studios Monastery in Istanbul.
- TED prize for archaeologist tracking looting from space.
- Philip Marlowe’s Los Angeles.
- Mike Wittgraf takes you on a ride on his motorcycle.
- Humanities majors still earn more than people who don’t got to college at all.
- Flyway is a gorgeous online literary journal from Iowa State.
- Future Forms is an online catalogue of industrial design. (It’s a form of micromuseology.)
- Omega Speemaster Dark Side of the Moon.
- Lots of buzz on this: The Decay of Twitter.
