Indiana Jones Comics!

on
2023-09-08

So for a while now I am a collector. A collector of Indiana Jones comics. I have stated in the past that I am not a big fan of good old Indy archaeologically, but as adventure-stories, his movies, games and… well comics still hold up. So, I started to…

on
2023-09-01

So, I have already written about our plans to organise an event on decolonising Archaeology. Also, how we moved that event to the ICAANE in Copenhagen. The workshop was great and this week we finally decided to move on with a publication of the individual presentations! This feels great…

Archaeology and Climate Change

on
2023-08-25

Climate change is real. I can’t understand people that do not see that, but we’ll leave them aside for now. This blog is (partly) about Archaeology and here is my take: By examining how ancient civilizations navigated shifting environmental conditions, we glean insights that can illuminate a sustainable path…

How Hamilton handles History

on
2023-08-18

Uh, I like that title. I like a good alliteration like the next guy. Anyway, I recently listened to the rather famous musical Hamilton, which is broadly about the life of Alexander Hamilton, a Founding Father who served as the first Secretary of Treasury during George Washington’s presidency. If…

So a while ago, I did create some reconstructions of ancient Pi-Ramesses, the capital of Ramesses II. I even posted here about a presentation I gave on it. A couple of weeks ago, a big exhibition was opened in the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir, Cairo and my reconstructions were…

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

on
2023-08-04

I had my opinions about the Uncharted series in the past. Recently, I grabbed Uncharted 4 in a Steam Sale, because I have never played it. The last couple of days (I have holidays right now!), I was playing through the story of Uncharted 4 and I have to…

Indiana Jones 5 – My verdict

on
2023-07-28

Ok, this blog post will be spoiler free. I watched Indiana Jones 5: The Dial of Destiny a couple weeks ago and I actually liked it for what it is! Archaeologically speaking, it is of course pure fantasy, but action-movie-wise it is not bad at all. Well, except one…

So, a while ago I posted about a new ArchaeoTrail course that I am giving, where students create ArchaeoTrails through Roman Cologne. Well, a couple of weeks ago, the semester ended and we had a look at the nearly done ArchaeoTrails and I have to say: Impressive!

Archaeology in space?

on
2023-07-07

Two weeks ago, I was listening to a presentation of Prof. Justin Walsh (Chapman University) about his “International Space Station Archaeological Project”. Is it really true? Is this archaeology in space? Well, not quiet, but the presentation and the project were fantastic. Let’s start from the beginning…

You could say I am quiet busy, so I learned to manage my time and energy to build good habits and still have space for myself and my family. Sounds difficult? Read here how I do it. Every Friday.
