Lots of interesting and news worthy things this week:
- Sad news about Tom Clifford's passing. He was President of the University of North Dakota from 1971 to 1992. Dan Rice's book is the best treatment of his term as President. The Alumni association has put up a nice biography and interactive space.
- Congratulations to Kostis Kourelis and all the contributors for the publication of Archaeology of Xenitia: Greek Immigration and Material Culture in the New Griffon publication series of the Gennadius Library at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. This books came out of a panel held at the 2007 Archaeological Institute of America meetings under the banner of the Archaeology of the Medieval and Post Medieval Mediterranean Interest Group.
- An interesting review and response to Y. Hamilakis' book, The Nation and Its Ruins at Archaeolog.
- Lux Interior of The Cramps died this past week. The Cramps concert at the California State Mental Hospital remains one of the landmarks in Punk Archaeology.
- Some good comments from Ryan Stander over at Axis of Access on my Historical Jesus talk.
I have the feeling that I had more varia and quick hits, but I can't remember them. So, the list will likely be updated.
Have a good weekend.
