Slow blogging again. I'm busy finishing up what I think are the next to the last and last indexes before I "retire." When I gave up clinical social work is when I actually think of myself as not so much retiring, but facing the upheaval of leaving work I loved for the green(ish) fields of Texas where I started doing a whole lot of other things that people who are privileged to have some resources can do. But this is "retirement" in the sense that I will actually be getting social security which will give me about as much money as I get indexing. I feel as if I am talking about someone else when I talk about such things as Social Security and Medicare: that's for old people!
Today I am simply posting some websites for archaeological projects. The first two sites deal with a dig going on at El Carrizal, about an hour east of us, which I find quite exciting because we can to it pretty easily. It is an Olmec site. You can see stuff about the Olmecs here and here on my blog. It is very extensive. The first website takes you to a blog in Spanish, the second to one in English.
Those of you who've lived not just in the US's southwest, but midwest and east and south may be very interested in two links here and here to websites dealing with current archaeology in those areas. Pretty soon we will have an entirely different perspective of what was going on before the English and Spanish and French arrived. It was a large and busy area.
These sites have lots of good photos and discussion.
