Thursday Throwdown of Archaeology Blogs to Look At VII

Posted on May 24, 2012


As usual, your weekly look at archaeologists or archaeology related blogs to follow. 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.

This weeks blogs are-

Lived Experience at Bodiam, Scotney and Ightham in the later middle ages-
“The purpose of this blog is to record my experience of producing these models and document my projects. The aim is that I will then use this as a basis to write up the process of producing the models and my decisions.”


A really great blog. Really can’t describe it, you will have to see it for yourself.
