  • Kristina Killgrove examines biological and cultural processes of childbirth via the lens of mother-fetus burials at Powered By Osteons.

  • At Originus, Cris Campbell urges caution when declaring artifacts as ornaments.
  • Can you trust what you think see? Always? At Genealogy of Religion, Cris Campbell discusses perceptual bias and hallucinations.
  • And finally, at Tropaion Nikolaos Markoulakis discusses the significance of fig cakes in a festival honoring Athena.

I’ll be back next week with more from anthropology, philosophy, and research.
