Around the Archaeology Blog-o-sphere Digest #4

Posted on September 28, 2014


The forth Archaeology Blog-0-sphere round-up. Still working out the problems but thanks to everyone who has suggested a blog or how to do it all better (apologies still trying to work out indenting). 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 . Moreover, I realize not everyone uses an RSS reader and some people might be interested in occasional posts from a blog and not follow them constantly. If that is you this round up might be useful to you.

I took these posts from my now updated list of archaeology blogs (410+ and counting). There are a few blogs that should be in this list that are missing — hoping to fix that. Here are this weeks posts–
