So much being said and written about The Dig! Amazing. Is this hyping for the sake of hyping when news is slow? I like the following pieces: Bede, The Dig and Sutton Hoo (BL blog), Inside The Dig (BM blog), and the four blog posts professor Howard Williams has already devoted to the movie.
It is just another day, as workers dig a trench near the village of Salme, Estonia. Their job is cable maintenance, but instead, they find ancient artefacts.

The BBC has finally also reported about the Gjellestad excavation! What took them so long, I wonder? What had me totally and completely in stitches is the site of Oslo’s Museum of Cultural History! They have an advent calendar of the Gjellestad excavation! Two doors have opened so far – where is the rest?
The ship burials on Edøy island, Norway.
Updated the Gjellestad ship article with an absolutely stunning visual reconstruction of the archaeological site. I wish they did this of each and every archaeological project out there (and my wishful thinking continues…)!
