It’s a sunny Friday here in North Dakotaland as the semester winds to a close. I’ve begun to slowly transition my thoughts from the academic year to my summer research carefully compartmentalizing the avalanche of grading over the next few weeks and the bevy of projects that demand to pushed across the finish line (not to mention the gaggle of end of semester meetings that will fill up my time as well as fine weather and social temptations!).
Before you check out the quick hits and varia, do go and read my earlier post today on the third anniversary of Joel Jonientz’s passing and the newest book from The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota, Haunted by Waters: the Future of Memory and the Red River Flood of 1997.
So as I brace for end of semester chaos, enjoy some quick hits and varia:
- A couple old friends review Grant Achatz ancient-themed season of Next.
- Peter Brown Inventor of Late Antiquity.

- Endangered Data Week: Some thoughts from Sarah Bond.
- History is not a useless major.
- Archaeology of Byzantine Anatolia.
- Rome built in a day by an architect of Adderall.
- Is Google good for research on Antiquity?
- Academic speed and autonomy.
- UVa in 3D.
- The archaeology of University of Richmond’s campus.
- Coltrane, Math, and Music.

We store our dogs this way.
