My favourite book by Iain M. Banks is in this list. Brilliant!
 
Our second list of books for the "Manual for Civilization" library comes from Long Now co-founder +Stewart Brand. He selects more than 70 books ranging from the Epic of Gilgamesh to recent science fiction and a 15,000 year survey of climate's relationship with humanity. It makes for great reading.

John Snow and the Broadstreet Map

Been busy in my new role, but managed to blog about the myths behind John Snow's famous map, which I admit is a bugbear of mine!

I have admired Jon Snow’s map of the 1854 Broad Street Cholera Epidemic since the first time I saw it, flicked up on a presentation about the power of GIS and described as the beginnings of spatial...

I helped record the originals as part of the Stonehenge Riverside Project (http://www.bournemouth.ac.uk/caah/stonehenge-riverside-project/).

Looking forward to seeing the results.

Wonder if who ever wins the contract would like the Ground based LiDAR of the excavated houses?

My colleague +Lawrence Shaw's heartfelt piece about studying Archaeology and the great places it's led him. Worth noting like everything worthwhile in life, no-one handed it to him on a plate, he worked hard to achieve it.
