Old Snails

Archaeo+Malacology Group Newsletter No. 17 is now available. Several of the short notes will be interesting to anyone with abnormal interests. I found Henk K. Mienis’s note on “Shells from Horvat ‘Illin Tahtit, a late Early Bronze I site in Bet Shemesh” the most fascinating contribution to this issue.
I don’t have any idea why, but I actually look forward to this rather specialized newsletter and I always find something abnormal in it.
Via Aydın Örstan who, writing with Henk K. Mienis, provides the illustrated note, “Archaeomalacology in the making: a wall of shells in Istanbul.”
