Robert Felix Lindley Jr.'s curator insight, April 11, 10:45 PM

Although in blurry 3D i enjoyed this video because it really goes in depth in the history of Mycenae, which is the topic we are and have been emphasizing on this week. I really like the images and graphics they show to illustrate Mycenae's founding as well as geography and architecture as well as pottery and weapons as well. Showing that this early Greek culture was actually quite advanced in their way of life.

Elena Victorero's curator insight, April 14, 8:42 AM

Did you know who were the Mycenae,? well ither your answer is yes or not this video could shed some light about this people who created a wealthy civilization until their demaise and further decay of Mycenae's  cities.

Fury over TV historians digging up Second World War graves

Fury over TV historians digging up Second World War graves | Teaching history and archaeology to kids | Scoop.it
The programme, called ‘Nazi War Diggers’, has been branded a disgrace after gruesome footage was released showing the presenters extracting various body parts from a grave in Latvia.
Louise Zarmati's insight:

Here's a good contrast for those interested in feminist archaeology: contrast the disgraceful cowboy archaeology approach of 'Nazi War Diggers' to the forensic science of Dr Caroline Sturdy Coll's excavations at Treblinka.
