If I was going to be in New York, I'd go to this exhibit of material from the Roman city of Dura-Europos. I have previously read a fair amount about information that excavations at Dura-Europos have provided on the Roman Army in the later empire. One of the most interesting finds there apparently gives evidence of an early form of chemical warfare. Our niece is in school at NYU. Maybe she'll go.
Pecan rustlers are rampaging through Georgia. OMG. Reminds me of the plague of mushroom rustlers we had in California a few years ago.
A 44,000 year-old house built of mammoth bone by Neanderthals has been found in Ukraine. Maybe it's just as well their sense of smell wasn't as good as ours. Especially if those were some wet bones.
Careful with that neti pot.
The origin of the building stones at Stonehenge has been found 100 miles away in Wales. I think to be clear, the general location of the quarry has been known for some time, this analysis just narrows it down.
