Adventure in archaeology

Hi all, today is a special post. I thought I would explain a little more on my fascination on archaeology. I guess it’s that aspect of looking for our place in history and unearthing what it means to be human. I have always believed that much of the answers to our present and future lie in the past.

I hope you enjoy the books I’ve selected for this special post! Continue reading “Adventure in archaeology”
