It’s a lovely Friday morning here in North Dakotaland. The birds are squawking, the dogs are barking, and the mosquitos are as big as man’s hand. There is Formula 1 racing this weekend, the tense end to an interesting test match between Sri Lanka and Australia, and the Phillies are even playing decent, if generally unsuccessful, baseball.
It seems like a great time for a little gaggle of quick hits and varia:
- RIP Charalambos Bouras.
- Strange conversations coming from Paphos.
- The first mosque in Athens.
- Free Sardis volumes.
- Today is the Day of Archaeology on the internets. You can also follow it on the Twitters at #dayofarch or #dayofarchaeology (For some of us, every day is the day of archaeology).
- On Dark Anthropology.
- Herzog on the internets.
- If you haven’t been reading the LARB’s series on digital humanities, you should be.
- What I’m reading: L. Cassuto, The Graduate School Mess: What Caused It and How We Can Fix It. Harvard 2015.
- What I’m listening to: Max Romeo, Horror Zone; Various Artists, The Harder They Come.
Amphibious Milo (we always thought he was a lefty).
I got my eye on you, Yellow Dog.
