ossamenta: (Book store = shiny!)
First, thanks for the well-wishes. The interview seemed to go well: some things that they liked about me, and some things I could improve on. We'll see what happens.

The new Oxbow summer catalogue is out and I thought I'd give a shout-out to some that seemed interesting. A lot of the catalogue is on Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, which I'm not enough familiar with to tell which books are of general relevance and which are only for the artefact/regional specialists. If you are interested in those periods I recommend you check out their website. An exception was made for books of interest to re-enactors and people interested in making replicas of historical finds, as there were a few of those in the Roman section.

Cut for lots of books )
ossamenta: Weasel skull (Default)
Remember last post, when I mentioned that I occasionally get into sewing/embroidery creativity mode? Thanks to Martin at Aardvarchaeology, I've found a new project: A Bactrian wall hanging from the 3rd/2nd century BC. Now, I wouldn't use it as trousers, as the previous owner had remade it as, but perhaps remake it into a cushion case.

Isn't it pretty?
