Archaeology in Social Media | Academia.edu Chronicles 11


Books (Source)
Once again, I'm back with a selection of reading materials - mostly on Irish archaeology - from the Academia.edu holdings. They are a collection of papers and chapters that caught my attention and I reckoned would be of wider interest, if you've not already encountered them. However, before you dive into any of these, I would ask you to take a look at the new book by Stuart Rathbone: Archaeological Boundaries. Discussions, Experiments and Unprovoked Attacks. Go take a look & then come back to these!



Even if you're not immediately ready to commit to a book length offering from Stuart, there's always a select collection of his papers to start you off!
