With the autumn in full swing here in North Dakotaland, it seems like time to dust off the olde quick hits and varia feature here at the Archaeology of the Mediterranean World. The air is crisp and the trees are just beginning to turn announcing that the school year is almost upon us and that I need to wrap up lingering loose ends from the summer. The third test in the Ashes are in full tilt (and as I write this England is 34/4 45/5 45/6 and not looking solid) offering a pleasant segue between the end of the baseball season (for a Phillies fan) and the start of the NFL season, the return of F1 and the final push in the NASCAR season.
If you’re in the neighborhood, do join us in Bismarck tomorrow night on the Lewis and Clark Riverboat on the Big Muddy at 8 pm to celebrate the launch of Dakota Datebook: North Dakota Stories from Prairie Public, edited by David Haeselin, and published by The Digital Press at the University of North Dakota. For more information on the launch party and to pre-order the book go here.
If you’re not from around these here parts (and even if you are), do enjoy this little swarm of quick hits and varia:
