Archaeology in Social Media | Academia.edu Chronicles 16

Books (Source)
Greetings one and all! Welcome to my 16th (and long overdue) ramble through my selection of the most interesting and exciting of the archaeology and history papers on the Academia.edu site. But first (and it will only take a moment) please divert your attention to Stuart Rathbone’s fantastic book: Archaeological Boundaries. Discussions, Experiments and Unprovoked Attacks. It’s published on the Leanpub platform and, while there is a suggested pricing, you can have it for free! I stand by my earlier claims that it the among the most significant books on Irish archaeology ever published and positions Stuart as among the most interesting and innovative thinkers in the field. Go on! You know you want to!
