Our first week of two at Stensö is over, and already Chris, Fanny and Simon have made trench A answer the question we’ve asked of it. Way back in line with the trench’s top edge on the flank of the northern tower’s ruin mound, they’ve uncovered a neat wall face of dressed ashlar, and out…

Many graphic designers like to cut out objects from photographs and give them a digital drop shadow on the page. Here’s an example of why this is often a bad idea. Since it’s working with a 2D image, the drop shadow algorithm has to assume that the object has no depth or surface contour. In…

Although I agree with the decree, this means of legislation is unsustainable.  The law will never see 2030.  If Obama can use the executive order pen to create law without congress, then the next president can annul it by doing the same.  Clinton did just that with EO 12866 which annulled Reagan's EO 12291 and 12498.

Core pomo science studies professor says roughly "You don't get to choose your own reality and laypeople don't know better than scientific consensus about factual issues."
Harry Collins, a founder of the field of "science studies," explains why we should listen to scientists on climate change, vaccines, and HIV-AIDS.

+Craig Manske  No, it isn't just 'listen to us'.  It is 'do your homework at least as much as us'.  The church said they were the only ones who knew truth and science says it is open to anyone willing to do the work.  But you don't have any business questioning what you know little or nothing about.

Medieval walls are usually shell walls, where you construct an inner and outer shell of finely fitted masonry while filling the space between them with a jumble of smaller stones and mortar. Usually the facing stones don’t project much into the core. When the wall is allowed to erode, once the cap stones have fallen…

A few months ago I registered on Elsevier’s clunky old on-line manuscript submissions site and submitted a paper to Journal of Archaeological Science. It got turned down because the two peer reviewers disagreed on whether it should be accepted or not. No biggie: I resubmitted elsewhere. Today Elsevier Science & Technology Journals spammed the address I submitted from with…

I’ve blogged before about becoming an archaeological dad, when new work built upon and superseded stuff I did in the 90s. Now stuff I did in the 00s has become, if not history, then at least museology, in the pages of Dr. Carl-Johan Svensson’s PhD thesis in didactics (freely available on-line as a 2.4 MB…
