In the last few weeks this blog has been a little bit quieter than usual and now the reason for this can be seen on the net: blogging archaeology is out!
Thanks to Dougs and Chris´ invitation I wrote an article called “Why archaeological blogging matters: personal experiences from Central Europe and South America” for their online publication “Blogging Archaeology”, based on an earlier draft on “What are the goals of archaeological blogging?“. The book has been presented officially on Saturday at the session “Archaeological Blogging” at the SAA in Austin, Texas. It consists of different contributions, from rather scholarly papers to personal experiences, but what unites us is the belief that blogging archaeology, in all its different versions, is relevant to our discipline, the public and to all of us who wish to promote archaeology to an ever wider audience, using the web and social media.
I am very proud to be part of this publication and invite all of you to read it, there are a lot of blogs to be checked out and to be followed! Thanks to our editors Doug Rocks-Macqueen and Chris Webster, who made this possible!
The book has been published under the common license and can be copied and cited freely. Please do so and feel free to publish the link on your own websites and blogs.
