Archaeology/Archaeology Related Blogs to Read XVI

Posted on September 13, 2012


The weekly list of archaeology/archaeology related blogs is back. As always a full list of the blogs can be found here. If there are any that I have missed please let me know.

To start out this week-

Spencer Carter’s entertaining blog about his Mesolithic research based in NE England

Anthropology Gallery-

Katie Jacobson’s blog. Fun fact, katie is the co-administrator of a Facebook page called “People Against Spike TV’s American Digger”.  If you haven’t already, you should check it out!

Her blog is pretty great too.
