Many apologies for my neglect of this patch of land. I’ve been writing and speaking, and more than usual. Busy season is upon us.

There’s been interesting news in the archeology of early Christianity:

MercatorNet ran an interesting analysis of the recent Saxon discovery: Let’s Have Done with the Dark Ages.

The New York Times discussed Counting Coins to Count Rome’s Population.

BMCR has been reviewing interesting books:

Gregg Gardner, Kevin L. Osterloh, Antiquity in Antiquity: Jewish and Christian Pasts in the Greco-Roman World. Reviewed here.

Judith Perkins, Roman Imperial Identities in the Early Christian Era. Reviewed here.
