Hello again and welcome to issue 13 of my continuing deep dive into the papers that have caught my eye on Academia.edu. They’re mostly Irish in focus, but other topics and writers that attract my attention are included too. But, before you consider investing some quality time settling into reading any of these, take a moment to acquaint yourself with Stuart Rathbone’s extremely excellent new book Archaeological Boundaries. Discussions, Experiments and Unprovoked Attacks. It’s available on the Leanpub site as a downloadable PDF on a pay-what-you-like basis. Who could ask for more?
Anyway, here are my latest recommendations – enjoy!
