Around the Archaeology Blog-o-sphere Digest #5

Posted on October 5, 2014


Here is the run down of posts by archaeology blogs in the last week.


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 realize not everyone uses an RSS reader and some people might be interested in occasional posts from a blog and not follow them constantly.


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–
