Dropping off Jrette at sailing camp for her 2nd summer. Just like her brother in ’09. Just like me in ’86. Heard new interviews with Andy Weir and Larry Niven on Planetary Radio. I love the Internet! Kelley Johnston on self-defense training for daughters: “I’d rather bail you out of jail than identify you at…

This writer knows what glass cutters are for but doesn’t know what they look like. She’s having somebody behead plastic dolls with one. You know suits of ‎armour‬? Almost all are Early Modern LARPing costumes for festive tournaments. Not ‎Medieval‬, not used in battle. Not having any teaching gig this semester is straining my finances.…

In April of 2007 I directed a week of metal detecting at sites in Östergötland where there was a potential for an elite presence in the period AD 400-1000. These investigations were part of a project that I published in my 2011 book Mead-halls of the Eastern Geats. One site that proved a dud for…

Unpleasant discovery. I’ve known for a long time that looking at the age of people who get lectureships in Scandy archaeology, the third quartile is at 46. In other words, 75% of all the jobs are given to people aged 46 or less. But now I’ve looked at the contents of the fourth quartile. And…

I’ve linked before to Christina Fredengren’s ground-breaking paper in Fornvännen 2015:3 about human and animal remains found in wet contexts in Uppland province (the area around Uppsala). The study’s empirical base is solid and eye-opening. I don’t find find the theoretical superstructure that the author briefly sketches onto it (the titular ”water politics”) convincing. But that’s not…

Myself, Ethan Aines and Mats G. Eriksson are proud to present our report on last year’s fieldwork at Stensö Castle, Östra Husby parish, Östergötland. Lots of goodies there, and with an added meaty report on the bones by Rudolf Gustavsson! It was a very fruitful two weeks at the site, during which we found the missing half of the…

Last Saturday I attended a rare event: a Swedish metal detector rally. At their worst, in some countries these are like pick-your-own strawberry plantations: pay to loot. But Swedish heritage law is uniquely restrictive around metal detectors, and Swedish daylight detectorists oppose looting, so this rally was an event where any archaeologist could feel at home.…

Myself, Ethan Aines and Mats G. Eriksson are proud to present our report on last year’s fieldwork at Landsjö Castle, Kimstad parish, Östergötland. Lots of goodies there! Construction on the castle seems to have begun between 1250 and 1275, and the site was abandoned halfway through an extension project some 50-75 years later. And we have also found a…
