This week from my column:

  • Contextual clues are important in archaeology. And at Bones Don’t Lie, Katy Meyers highlights how a geoarchaeology approach can reveal how a tomb was treated—whether it was reopened and how many times. With time, this information may be linked to other tomb elements that can possibly shed more light on funerary practices.

  • At EvoAnth, Adam Benton delves into attraction, asking what appeals to us and why. He does a fine job of rounding out the discussion by explaining this study against the backdrop of both evolutionary psychology and human behavioral ecology.

More next week!
