A good blog on the human past

When someone adds me to their blogroll, I know they have taste. Here's a nice site, the Archeological Mind, that blogs about archeology, oddly enough, in particular (so far as I can see) architectural archeology. Lots of nice Egyptian and Mayan stuff.

Now I have to say something sensible about archeology - OK: human cultural evolution is exactly a Darwinian process of evolution, of variation, selection (cultural rather than genetic) and diversification and extinction. Fill out the details amongst yourselves, as an exercise...
