Friday Varia and Quick Hits

I will flirt with 50 degrees this weekend as spring looks like it has official sprung here on the Northern Plains. This was the mildest winter I’ve encountered here in North Dakota, and I don’t know whether to thank El Nino or Global Warming!

The week has been pretty exciting here in the Archaeology of the Mediterranean World land. You can now order a dead tree version of The Bakken Goes Boom: Oil and the Changing Geographies of Western North Dakota for the low, low price of $15.00. That’s right $15.00. Or better still, download it for free

Next week, Erin Walcek Averett from Creighton University will visit UND to give the Seventh Cyprus Research Fund Lecture titled: “Frightening the Frightful: Grotesque Visages from Ancient Cyprus.” It’s at 3 pm in the East Asia Room of the Mighty Chester Fritz Library. Or you can live stream the talk here.

Finally, you may have noticed that Caraheard Podcast Season 2, Episode 6 dropped yesterday. I think the sound quality is better than ever and the conversation is as good as you might expect from me and Richard Rothaus. Jon Frey, of course, more than holds his own.

Some other fun links for your balmy, early spring weekend:
