A little embarrassed that it has been two months since I last posted on archaeology blogs to read. Especially when there are so many great archaeology blogs posting great stuff everyday. To make up for my lack of posting this post will be a double issue (I might post later in the week as well). Over 100+ blogs covered so far, full list can be seen here and more to go:
Aegean prehistory: http://englianos.wordpress.com/
I am a professor of Classics at the University of Toronto. My research interests broadly embrace early Greek archaeology, history, and culture. Primarily my work focuses on the archaeology and scripts of the Aegean Bronze Age.
ArchyFantasies is an Archaeologist who is racking up the years in the lab and the field. A special love for Historical Arch and Chert drive her forward in seeking out new digs and new nodes to crack open. She has taken on the endeavor to debunk bad archaeology and to reach out to the public in an entertaining and informative way in hopes of increasing public understanding of her chosen field.
Archaeology, Academia and Access: http://ejarchaeology.wordpress.com/
A blog from a current postgraduate at York.
Archaeolog.org was fashioned in the creative crucible of the Metamedia Lab at Stanford University; a hub where energies run high and ideas are always effervescent. In October of 2005 Michael Shanks was already a familiar presence in the blogging world with archaeolog.com (thus, we retain the .org domain here). Still, there was a need for an outlet that was community driven; one that captured the spirit and ethos of the lab; an outlet where thoughtful, candid, and substantive exchange merged with inclusivity and a spirit of openness. All archaeologists deserved a channel to say whatever needed to be said. And to state it in whatever way they felt best. No matter what the piece, this was clearly not another blog with off-the-cuff reflections on burnt toast in the morning or the latest episode of X (although it could have been). From the beginning it attempted to provide voice to archaeology’s rich diversity and fill a gap between journals and assemblies for immediate debate with the speed that is indicative of this fast medium.
The purpose of this website is the spread of information about several stone age tools and assemblages, from the Rhine -Meuse region, derived from different regional field prospections ( surface assemblages).
Archaeology Travel: http://archaeology-travel.com/blog/
The aim of the Archaeology Travel website is twofold: it will not only provide resources necessary to visit archaeological sites and museums, both near and far, and it will provide a forum for people to share those experiences with others.
Crossroads of empires: http://crossroadsofempires.wordpress.com/
We are a team of archaeologists, historians and anthropologists studying the Niger Valley where it borders Niger and Bénin (West Africa). We are carrying out new excavations and research to shed more light on the people that inhabited the area between about 1200 and 1850 AD.
Archaeological Networks: http://archaeologicalnetworks.wordpress.com/
The project intends to develop analytical frameworks based on the network perspective for the current shift in Roman archaeology towards social analysis, based on two case-studies. It aims at developing network analysis methods for quantitative as well as qualitative research in Roman archaeology.
The Heritage Alliance: http://www.theheritagealliance.org.uk/
The Heritage Alliance, established in 2002 as Heritage Link, is the biggest alliance of heritage interests in the UK and was set up to promote the central role of the independent movement in the heritage sector.
