  • At Powered by Osteons, Kristina Killgrove has a fantastic seasonal post up on the symbolism of eggs and their role in burials.
  • At Gambler’s House, teofilo clears up usage of the word “flimsy” in the context of Mississippian houses by highlighting an interesting bias that the word contributes.
  • According to Dr. Stu, the onset of warmer weather might loosen your purse strings. Research that explores the intersection of sunshine, mood and our wallets suggest that people will spend more on warmer days.
  • At Neurodojo, Zen Faulkes reports that fingerprints confound even the experts. He discusses the incidence of errors among experts—who were not permitted to report anything but certainty on their identifications.

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