  • 29 Jan - Greco-Roman Sex: Wilder & Weirder than Ours (HuffPo Blogs).  Author Vicki Leon is coming out with a new book, The Joy of Sexus: Lust, Love, and Longing in the Ancient World and highlights some of her findings in this post.
  • 21 Feb - 1 Kitty, 2 Empires, 2,000 Years: World History Told through a Brick (The Atlantic).  In addition to shoes, I have a soft spot for hand/foot/pawprints on brick.  A weird brick with a cat footprint found at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site in Washington state is consistent with a manufacture date/place of Roman Britain.  The brick may have reached the western US via the Hudson's Bay Company in the early 1800s.
