In what has been a frankly devestating week for world archaeology let’s see if we can find any wonder and magic in the rest of the internet…
♦ The fascinating belongings of a teenage Egtved girl reveal much about her life.
♦ 9 women talk about life in the munitions factories of the First World War.
♦ I do so love evidence of burial rituals, (which is handy because it’s what my research is focussed on). Here we find evidence of flowers being laid on a grave by mourners 18,000 years ago.
♦ The biggest question on all our minds – what is Lady Gaga’s wedding dress going to look like? Some top designers have a stab at it.
♦ The oldest stone tools have been discovered, by accident.
♦ I love this article on how to bring minimalism in to your workplace.
♦ So beautiful and haunting. This is how ancient Babylonian songs may have sounded.
Have a fabulous and very long weekend!
