Six big archaeology stories of 2018

THAT'S A LOT: 6 archaeology stories from 2018 that made me rethink my world. Who knew? Archaeology is therapy; maybe a meteor destroyed Sodom and Gemorrah [sic]; there are still new Dead Sea Scrolls treasures to decipher; and the mighty louse is a wonder (Amanda Borschel-Dan, Times of Israel).

I followed all of these stories and blogged on most of them. I didn't find any of them world-shaking. (The Sodom and Gomorrah one was region shaking.) But all of them were interesting.

I'm looking forward to another year of interesting stories in 2019, and to Ms. Borschel-Dan's coverage of them.
