What is the #archaeology like on all these tiny islands in the Aegean?

Follow this #THREAD to join us on the Small Cycladic Islands Project. We’re visiting a brand new island today & I can’t wait to see what awaits us!

2/ Today, we’re boating out of Panagia Kanala on Kythnos to visit the island of Piperi, 9km to the southeast.

From afar, the Piperi seems like a steep rock sticking out of the sea, w/ little vegetation, water, or evidence of human activity. I’m sure we’ll find something, though!
3/ Every day on #SCIP2021 begins with a ride like this! We throw all of our equipment in dry bags and hop on a RIB for what must be the best commute in the world!

We have wonderful boating weather this morning, but it might get hot out there when we’re surveying!

My hair's getting long, but not long enough to tie into a ponytail, which is my intention in this time when we avoid barbers. You can see how long my hair has become in the selfie I posted today. In it I sit at my desk...
...working on my laptop, my immense desk towering over me and clutter filling the space that is not filled by electronics. I chose black and white for this composition as I do for all my best selfies. It's unique because...

Wenn Masken angeblich so viel Nutzen bringen, wie konnten andere Staaten
#Infektionszahlen auch ohne #Maskenpflicht wirksam nach unten drücken ?
Beispiele gibt es genügend, Nummer 1 ist #Schweden, aber auch #Dänemark hat es ohne Masken geschafft, der Anstieg ist nur eine ImageImageImage
Folge vermehrter Tests. Die Prävalenz ist von 15% auf 3% gesunken. Aber auch #Estland, #Finnland und #Ungarn haben keine Maskenpflicht. ImageImageImage
Selbst #Island, #Norwegen und #Niederlande hatten keine Maskenpflicht. Niederlande hat im August in Amsterdam und Rotterdam eine Maskenpflicht eingeführt aber nur punktuell, nicht landesweit. ImageImageImage

#Exploze islandské sopky #Askja, která pomohla vyhnat čtvrtinu tamní populace. Aneb dnes se vysílal druhý díl miniseriálu o sopkách Islandu na @CRoDvojka v pořadu #Meteor, který jsem pomáhal připravit dvojka.rozhlas.cz/meteor-o-sakal… @Akademie_ved_CR @GFU_AVCR #avcr #akademieved #Island Image
Podobně jako k #Laki, i k Askje vyšel na webu @Vesmir1871 článek, který se explozi této vnitrozemské islandské sopky zevrubně věnuje. Pokud jste tak fandové #vulkanologie či #Island, směle do čtení! vesmir.cz/cz/on-line-cla…

Nový Meteor na @CRoDvojka je venku. Tentokrát se podíváme do roku #1918, který máme spojen s koncem I. světové války a vznikem #ČSR. Pro obyvatele Islandu to byl ale rok, kdy vybuchla sopka #Katla a zaplavila své okolí... dvojka.rozhlas.cz/meteor-o-hromo… @Akademie_ved_CR #akademieved Image

(So 3rd attempt writing this thread. Now condensed)

#DnD World Building thread:

I'm writing up a largely sandy island for a #DnD5e campaign 🏝 The island is loosely shaped like a spear head, with a mountain ridge running along what might be seen as the spears ridge / fuller 🗡
I love the phonetic sounds of the Arabic language for this location. I'm currently thinking the island is called internationally as Al 'Ard Ramali. Which roughly translates to The Land of the Spear. Is that too many syllables for a countries name? Does it flow? ⁉
At the very tip of the island (the pointy end), is the capital, a large trading port city that is literally & physically split in two ⚓ It is known for trading in exotic items, precious metals & precious gems. Due to the desert environment that largely covers the island, food...

hearing—"#China's Worldwide #Military Expansion" is a dramatic bellwether of growing concerns in Washington & beyond.

Now online—hard-hitting arguments + many data points, some deeply-analyzed yet hard to find elsewhere in public domain:
