Bloggy links

Shrunken heads are not pc!

I would think not.

One of the joys of the Pitt-Rivers Museum, and the reason that it is a treasure trove, is that its collections come from a more self- confident age. See link to it in favorites. HT David Zincavage, who is self- confident.

Here is a wonderful map on a wonderful site, worthy of Indiana Jones or better Roy Chapman Andrews. HT Doc Hypercube.

Annie D sends this list of... interesting.. book titles. My DEFINITE preference is "Tattooed Mountain Women and Spoon Boxes of Daghestan", though it only made second place. Sigh.

Photo posts soon.

A great map. Tolkienesque.
