Some older entries are here.

As promised last month, some more archaeology, by way of adding things to google maps as well as wikipedia:

  • Nuraghe La Prisgiona, a nuragic archaeological site (occupied from the 14th until the 9th century B.C.), located in the Capichera valley in the municipality of Arzachena Costa Smeralda in the north of Sardinia. It consists of a nuraghe and a village comprising around 90-100 buildings, spread across 5 hectars.
  • Bartlow Hills, a Roman tumuli cemetery in Bartlow, very close to Cambridge, with a lovely picture by Bill Blake. Further pictures from this set are available on Flickr.

For both these entries on wikipedia, others were happy to grant permission: In the case of Nuraghe La Prisgiona, the site administration was happy for the English text from their website to form the basis for the wikipedia article. For Bartlow Hills, photographer Bill Blake was happy to make the image available. The image was taken using Kite Aerial Photography, see Bill's post here: http://billboyheritagesurvey.wordpress.com/2011/02/04/the-flying-x1/.

So many thanks for Bill and Mauro!
