My Name is Oxblood – the lore and archaeology surrounding red glazed ceramics.

Haram at the Beach – the beach as a liminal zone for Muslim women and their families.

Meditation on a Broken Horse – thinking about the process of excavating a horse skeleton.

Texting and the Telegraph – on the relative affordances of media separated by a century.

At the Souvlaki Stand – a more writerly summary of my favorite spot to drink and relax while excavating in Crete.

Fake Dead People – why we shouldn’t create NPCs in our archaeological virtual reconstructions.
