Around the Archaeology Blog-o-sphere Digest #3

Posted on September 19, 2014


Our third Archaeology Blog-0-sphere round-up. Hope you enjoy the reading.


I am highlighting some of the other archeo-blogs out there but instead of focusing on the whole blog I am going to be collecting all their posts from the previous week . Also, I realise not everyone uses an RSS reader and some people might be interested in occasional posts from a blog and not follow them constantly so this round up might be useful for them.

I took these posts from my now updated list of archaeology blogs (410+ and counting). Though I have noticed a few blogs that should be in this list are missing. It is better than the last few weeks but I am still working out the issues. I am currently at the LAN conference so have not had the time to fix it. Here are this weeks posts–
