Friday Links: What’s New in Historical Archaeology

Here’s what you may have missed last week in the world of Historical Archaeology online. This week’s photo was snagged from my own flickr account, of a map of an early 19th century site in Virginia taken this summer. Can you spot the four post holes?

We would love to feature more photos, but need photos to feature! If you have a Flickr photo account, and tag photos with a Creative Commons license, please put a link in the comment section below so we can use them in our Friday Links!
