Prof. B: Recent NYTimes article about pushing the date back for the earliest Acheulean tools (think stone hand-axes, before homo sapiens). Check out how they dated them and think about how much confidence you feel in that dating. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/01/science/01tools.html?hpw

L. Bestock: This is fantastic! NYTimes front page about Vladimir Putin "discovering" pots in an underwater dig. I hadn't heard about it prior to this refutation. The mashup of politics and archaeology and misrepresentation in this situation is priceless. NYTimes Putin in a wetsuit
