It’s a cold and windy Friday with intermittent internet connectivity at Archaeology of the Mediterranean World Headquarters, a stack of papers to grade, and what looks to be a successful, if somewhat disappointing start to the summer season of cricket in Australia.
Before our regularly scheduled varia and quick hits, I’d be remiss if I didn’t offer a little holiday shopping advice! Need a last minute gift for the book worm in your world? Check out the offerings from The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota. From the latest in digital archaeology and 3D imaging to thoughtful works on the history of North Dakota, the Digital Press at UND has almost everything you’d need for the Mediterranean archaeologist and historian of North Dakota in your life. Check out The Bakken Goes Boom, The War with the Sioux, Visions of Substance, Punk Archaeology, and Mobilizing the Past.
