4 Stone Hearth, Bone edition


Oh, yeah, they call it the Ossa Edition.  Or OSSA Edition — but they are the Swedish Osteological Association, and we all know they mean bones.

4 Stone Hearth #62 is up at Osteologiska föreningen.

Great stuff, as usual.

And I mention it because Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub will host the next edition of 4 Stone Hearth.  No bones about it.

Since I am dense as a stone about some of the great issues this carnival involves, I’m hopeful there will be plenty of good, early entries . . .

The Four Stone Hearth is a blog carnival that specializes in anthropology in the widest (American) sense of that word. Here, anthropology is the study of humankind, throughout all times and places, focussing primarily on four lines of research:

  • archaeology
  • socio-cultural anthropology
  • bio-physical anthropology
  • linguistic anthropology

Each one of these subfields is a stone in our hearth.

Four Stone Hearth is published bi-weekly, Wednesdays in odd-number weeks. If you would like to host the carnival, please write to Martin Rundkvist.

If you would like to submit content to the next issue of the carnival, please write to the keeper of the blog in question [Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub] or to Martin. You are encouraged to submit other bloggers’ work as well as your own.

So, cook something up to bring to the next Four Stone Hearth.  It’s pot luck, the more stuff you bring, the more to share.  Please include a mention of Four Stone Hearth in your e-mail’s title. I get a lot of e-mail, and I hate to miss anything important.

In the interim, take a good look at FSH #62.   Several posts drive directly at the work scientists do with wonderful details about how they do it.  It’s a bit of a slog to follow me to this conclusion, but I was struck by the amount of work required, the careful ways these guys go about it, and the way the work itself rather exposes the paucity of grounding of pseudo sciences.  Science is under attack here in Texas, so I’m a little sensitive to that issue.  Give it a look.

I love a good carnival!
