    The largest extinction in Earth's history marked the end of the Permian period, some 252 million years ago. Long before dinosaurs, our planet was populated with plants and animals that were mostly obliterated after a series of massive volcanic eruptions in Siberia. This illustration shows the percentage of marine animals that went extinct at the end of the Permian era by latitude, from the model (black line) and from the fossil...

    A team of researchers from France, Sweden, and Denmark have identified a new strain of Yersinia pestis, the bacteria that causes plague, in DNA extracted from 5,000-year-old human remains. Their analyses, published in the journal Cell, suggest that this strain is the closest ever identified to the genetic origin of plague. Their work also suggests that plague may have been spread among Neolithic European settlements by traders,...

    Nicola Lanzarone, Il commento di Pomponio Leto all'Appendix Vergiliana. Edizione critica, Pise, 2018.

    Éditeur : Edizioni ETS
    Collection : esti e studi di cultura classica
    188 pages
    ISBN : 9788846752369
    18 €

    Pomponio Leto, il celebre umanista che fu professore di latino nello Studium Vrbis nella seconda metà del Quattrocento, dedicò un'intensa attività didattica ed esegetica alle opere di Virgilio, non solo a Bucoliche, Georgiche ed Eneide, ma anche ai componimenti (oggi ritenuti generalmente spurii) che furono poi raccolti sotto il titolo di Appendix Vergiliana. Proprio il commento del Leto a questi poemetti viene qui pubblicato per la prima volta in una edizione critica, che, per una parte non piccola di tali annotazioni, costituisce anche l'editio princeps. Si tratta di una testimonianza significativa dello studio dei classici nel XV secolo e di un passaggio importante della plurisecolare esegesi virgiliana, che lascerà un'ampia traccia nei successivi commenti a Virgilio e allo Pseudo-Virgilio.

    The Doctor Who episode “The Androids of Tara” is part of the Key to Time sequence. According to the BBC website, it was apparently based on a late 19th century novel, The Prisoner of Zenda. It is just one of many episodes that features something that would be bound to happen in endless time and […]

    In the UK, the PAS is supposed to be doing value-for-public-money archaeological outreach to the British publis. What i9t does in its social media use is (gatekeeping other people's finds) concentrate largely on show-and-tell use of loose artefacts as illustrations of historiography, rarther than as a contexted source in their own right. Here we have another egregious example:

    The text: "An unusual George III shilling, issued by the South Sea Company 
    (see initals on the reverse) and made c.1722 from silver they discovered
    and shipped from Indonesia. The SSC is famous for South Sea Bubble 
    economic  collapse and it's [sic] involvement in the 
    This is scissors-and-paste artefactology and nothing else. I see a parallel with the discussion in his seminal The Idea of History (1946) by R.G. Collingwood of what constitutes historical evidence. He criticises “scissors and paste” historians. These are those who construct history merely by "excerpting and combining the testimonies of different authorities" (p. 251). Such historians are those who first “decide what we want to know about and then go in search of statements about it, oral or written, purporting to be made by actors in the events concerned” (p. 257). Collingwood then goes on to discuss the fact that historiographers who engage in this practice fail to ask why a particular statement was made at the time and take it as self evident that it relates to the historiographer’s own ideas. These historians are not seeing the context of the items they are using as evidence, merely picking those that fit preconceived ideas about the past. Furthermore, in order to facilitate fitting recorded words into a pre-existing scheme, the scissors-and-paste historiographer always wants more 'testimony' to bolster up the picture they want to paint (p. 279):
    So, however much testimony he has, his zeal as an historian makes him want more. But if he has a large amount of testimony, it becomes so difficult to manipulate and work up into a convincing narrative that , speaking as a mere weak mortal, he wishes he had less [...]. The scissors-and-paste historian protects himself from seeing the truth about his own methods by carefully choosing subjects which he is able to ‘get away’ with [...]. The subjects must be those about which a certain amount of testimony is accessible, not too little and not too much; not so uniform as to give the historian nothing to do, not so divergent as to baffle his endeavours to do it. Practiced on these principles, history was at worst a parlour game, and at best an elegant accomplishment .
    The FLO here is mimicking the coineys and duplicating their efforts. His 'archaeological' text differs in no substantive way from theirs. We don't need this.

    Perhaps PAS might spend less time on parlour games and pandering and more time on a more substantive archaeological outreach.
