Around the Archaeology Blog-o-sphere Digest #7

Posted on October 19, 2014

Here is my weekly list of blog posts from Archaeology blogs/ blogs that focus on Archaeology. I have added a couple of more blogs to the list so some more new reading.

Purpose

I am highlighting some of the other archeo-blogs out there by collecting all their posts from the previous week . Hopefully, you find some of the posts interesting and/or find a new blog to follow.

Source

I took these posts from my now updated list of archaeology blogs (415+ 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–
