“Adventures in Archaeology, Human Palaeocology, and the Internet”
Authored by Matthew Law, Lecturer in Geography at Bath Spa University, UK, and PhD student at Cardiff University, this blog explores human-environment interactions and the authors’ personal “archaeomalacological analyses” (i.e. results of his faunal studies). The posts are well-written, extensively referenced (a plus for students) and link to other scholarly sources and academic blogs such as “Then Dig” hosted by UC Berkeley. This suggests that the audience is largely from academic circles ranging from geography, environmental studies, and archaeology. The topics covered are various, and are often related to small things that are taken for granted, for example, preserved dog prints on historic architecture (who thinks to look for that??).
