What I wrote last month at Forbes -- Warlord with malaria, cultural infanticide, shackled Greek skeletons, archaeo casualties of Trump's wall, and more!

Here's what I wrote over at Forbes in the month of March:

  • 21 March - How Trump's Wall Would Trample Hundreds of Archaeological Sites.  I did some back-of-the-envelope calculations about the number of sites the proposed border wall would run into.  There's a good comment on the post from an archaeologist who gives a much larger figure than I did.  And if I use his data, we come out to about the same number -- close to 3,000.  While he doesn't seem to think this is a problem, I don't like the history of the government waiving archaeological mitigation and am pretty sure it'd happen in the case of a border wall.
