Interesting news and articles - April 21, 2013

Another busy week this past week and I didn't do a lot of reading, but I did scrounge up a few things to post here.  The coming week looks rather busy too, so I don't know how much reading I will be doing this week either.  If the history aspect of this blog interests you though, check out my Web of History Tumblr, where I post vintage photographs and little snippets of history throughout the week.

Archaeology
