  1. Great post. I’m not too sure blogs are attempting to add to the vast amount of peer-reviewed stuff already out there. Most blogs give archaeologists a chance to voice opinions and, as you mention, test ideas that do not necessarily have the goal of going peer-review.

    Why do you blog, Paul?

    • I always think of my blog posts as ideas that could become papers, or simply chances to push beyond thinking off the top of my head and give flashes of curiosity some intellectual rigor. Even when they don’t become peer reviewed, the blog posts push me to read some new things and think a little more systematically about things.
