Pinned toot

As I work on next week's , lemme just plug my Ko-Fi account here. My work is a hobby that I do for free alongside full-time PhD studies, so if you enjoy the content I create and want to throw a few quid my way, I appreciate it! It helps pay for my website domain, among other things (like coffee to power my writing!).

This week's blog post is based on a recent paper I presented at the 2018 Theoretical Archaeology Group conference: how can we incorporate a little anarchy into archaeology? Click the link to find out!

This week on the blog we return to neo-paganism and talk about Heathenry, the Alt-Right, and why archaeologists should be paying attention to the discourse between (and overlapping) these groups.

Happy holidays and shout out to my parents who decided to troll their zooarchaeologist daughter by gifting her two of the worst looking, inaccurate skeletal models.
