This is the forth of what should become a weekly look at great Archaeology blogs (at 4 it probably already is a weekly event). You can see last weeks here and a full list of great archaeology blogs here.
After you take a look leave a comment letting me know which ones you found interesting, great, that you liked, etc. AND nominate a blog not already on the list, that is relatively related to archaeology, for next weeks highlight. There are lots of great blogs out there and it would be great to be able to highlight the good work people are doing.
Mick Morrison, Archaeology and heritage in Australia- http://mickmorrison.com/
“The purpose of this blog is to bring together the various strands that compromise my professional activities and interests. I post here when I can, usually no more than 15-20 posts per year. So you can safely subscribe to my blog in the knowledge that you won’t be bothered by dozens of posts per week.”
Mick sticks to his word and does not blog everyday but the stuff he does do is pretty great.
Archaeology Resource- http://archaeology-resource.blogspot.co.uk/
This blog has been doing an amazing interview series in which they talk to people who have graduate with degrees in archaeology. It is amazing were people end up and what they end up doing. It is one of the few looks at those that did, and more importantly did not, have a career in the heritage sector.
Billboyheritagesurvey’s Blog- http://billboyheritagesurvey.wordpress.com/
A mix of conservation and archaeology but the real focus of this blog is KAP (Kit Aerial Photography). He posts a lot of great stuff on KAP but also some great things on survey too, check out his post on how to travere.
Histories of Archaeology Research Network Weblog- http://harngroup.wordpress.com/
Great place for information on archaeology’s past.
It’s Not Just A Trowel It’s A Way Of Life-http://archaeogirl.wordpress.com/
By far one of the best names for an archaeology blog. It has been quite a few months since anything new has been published on this blog but the archives are great.
A bonus blog not quite archaeology but still pretty cool-
MAM– Mayas for Ancient Maya- http://discovermam.org/
Join us in this movement—part academic, part spiritual—as the indigenous Maya reunite with their own past, reading the ancient hieroglyphic books and monuments, communicating with their ancestors.
