It's cold here! So a frigid Friday Varia:
- This is Sebastian Heath's account of the CPAC (Cultural Property Advisory Committee) meeting in Washington, D.C.
- This is an interesting concept: TwHistory. Check it out. (via R. Scott Moore)
- This is a cool post on the graves of archaeologists.
- The First Cyprus Research Fund lecturer, Michael Fronda, has a book cover!
- This can't be good news for Greece.
- This is strange news. Tassos Papadopoulos grave was robbed and his body stolen.
- But this is undoubtedly good new for Bismark and the rest of us who appreciate Aaron Barth's quirky ruminations.
- This is good news: The Kent-Berlin Ostia Excavations got the funding it needed to continue, after almost having to pack it in.
- Go to Teaching Thursday and tell us what you're reading this holiday break. There is no excuse not to and we know that you are going to be reading something. So, please.
- Big news about the 2010 Wilkins Lecture in the Department of History at the University of North Dakota... so stay tuned.
- I've been invited to give the Elwyn B. Robinson at the Chester Fritz Library at UND. Readers of this blog know my interest in Elwyn B. Robinson so this a particular honor. More on my subject soon.
Ok, I better get back to this stack of grading, but I'll check back and update this quick hits and varia over the course of the day. I am sure there are things that I meant to include, but they just slipped my mind at this hectic time of the semester.
