Diary from Egypt
Do you ever wonder how an archaeologist works' Well, you needn’t anymore. Because, Egyptologist Betsy Bryan and her team are sharing their work through an online diary, giving us an insight into the day-to-day life of an archaeological team. If you visit their online diary, “Hopkins in Egypt Today” at www.jhu.edu, you will find photos of Betsy and her colleagues working at their archaeological find. Betsy and her team will be excavating the area behind the sacred lake at the temple of the goddess Mut. The goal of the “Hopkins in Egypt Today” website is to educate visitors by showing them the elements of archaeological work in progress. Their photographer will capture images of the team as they carefully sift through trenches, uncovering mud brick walls, pottery shards, animal bones and other remains.
Remember mumbles, He emperor penguin in Happy Feet, who discovers that overfishing by humans is causing a famine in the penguin colony in Antartica' Unfortunately, that could turn out to be all too true, if a recent plan to open the Patagonian coast to anchovy fishing materialises. The Patagonian coast is near the world’s largest Magellanic penguin community, which depends on the anchovies for food. Let’s make sure the Mumbles of this world don’t go hungry because of us.
