Old News, Issue 2

Over on our Patreon

For $10+ patrons of The Dirt, Anna and Amber deliver to your doorstep our monthly news roundup, in which we highlight some of the best archaeology stories we've encountered lately. We cover mummies of multiple origins, Micronesian cryptocurrency, Aboriginal arrivals in Australia, sandals for horses, a dinner party with 50,000-year-old meat on the menu, a man with a SWORD FOR AN ARM, and much more! 

That's not to say our lovely listeners on the main feed can't enjoy Old News! This month, Anna and Amber decided to share their bumper crop of archaeology news stories with the world and drop a bonus mini episode of the first few stories.

Stories covered in the excerpt:

Four Roman Horseshoes Found in England (Archaeology)

Harrowing child sacrifice grave uncovered by archaeologists at lost Aztec city (Express UK)

The Dinner Party That Served Up 50,000-Year-Old Bison Stew (Gastro Obscura)
