Archaeology in Social Media | Academia.edu Chronicles 02

Following on from the popularity of my last trawl through the Academia.edu holdings of Irish archaeology (and other material that caught my interest), I though I'd put together another brief post with more reading suggestions. As always, if there's anything I've missed, or you'd like me to feature some of your writing, just let me know & I'll consider it for future posts.
