A balmy midwinter is making the middle weeks of the semester seem just a bit easier here in North Dakotaland. It’s almost enough to make me overlook all the troubles in the world.
If you haven’t had a chance to download our book, Pyla-Koutsopetria I: Archaeological Survey of an Ancient Coast Town from the ASOR website, you should! Go here.
Also, be sure to check out next week’s Facebook Live cast with Eric Burin, editor of Picking the President: Understanding the Electoral College from The Digital Press at UND. We’re going to broadcast from the book’s Facebook page starting at 1pm on Tuesday.
If that’s still not enough to keep you distracted over the weekend, here’s a little list of quick hits and varia:
- The newest Hesperia is out. It feels a bit olde skool.
