New American Antiquity is out…

…and included an epic exchange between Stuart Fiedel and Julie Morrow vs. Charlotte Beck and George T. Jones. 

Simply. Epic. 


Reading Roll Call (May 2012)

At the beginning of each month, how about we have an open thread where everyone posts something they’ve read over the last month that’s knocked their socks off?

For example, this last month I’ve finally got around to reading Sidney Mintz’s “Sweetness and Power.” I think I’ve read bits and pieces in classes, and I’ve heard a wide array of people wax poetic about it for years, but this is the first time I’ve read it cover-to-cover. Talk about an elegant and compelling argument…and it makes me realize that despite my interests in prehistoric subsistence trends, I really am not as well read as I should be in “nutritional anthropology.”
