It’s been a long finals week with lots of grant-reviewing, grading, and some start-stop writing that probably just made me more work to do later. That being said, there was some exciting Sixers basketball, the start of a tense test match in Perth, and even some fluffy white snowflakes to holiday up North Dakotaland.
It’s a busy time of year for most folks, but if you have the time, perhaps by the fire or on the veranda, here are some quick hits and varia:
- Lots on the new Stephan Fry book. Here from Fry and Emily Wilson and here a review by Johanna Hannink.
- Recent work at Lechaion.
- Stuff like this is why I’ve stopped blogging.
- Burying treasures in Athens during World War II.
- How Athenians connected during the debt crisis.
- My buddy Kyle Conway on his new book.
- Cultural Heritage and Digital Imaging.
- A nice report on the ISAW conference on digital publishing in archaeology.
- A virtual museum of archaeological computing.
- John Cale at 75 and Neil Young’s sweater.
