This week at Forbes: Tarim mummies, Synagogue mosaics, 'Diggers' returns, Philip II Part II, Roman medical ideas, DNA of Magna Graecia, and Napoleonic mass grave

Whew, it was a busy week!  Here's what I wrote:

  • The Six Weirdest Ancient Roman Ideas about the Human Body.  My awesome grad student Andrea and I are perusing the Latin literature trying to find neat epigrams for the manuscript I'm writing (a pop-sci book about what Roman bioarch can teach us), and I put up this post based on some of that research.
I'm writing up a post on Iceland to run on Monday... when I leave for Iceland!  I might get around to one more post while I'm in Reykjavik, but expect very little from me as I attempt to actually go on vacation for once.
