2007 Updates to

There is new stuff on my webpage:

Historic and prehistoric lithics, ceramics from the Humber sites (Coahoma Co. MS), some more plant, animal and farming photos. New sections include information on Delta counties and archaeological societies. There are many additions to the bibliography, in particular the Arkansas publications.

I'm down in Richland Parish, Louisiana, on a job now, but will try to iron out the errors in navegation., spelling, etc. the webmaster built into these new additionas as soon as I can.

Also, see the 2007 annual report on the homepage on what (little) I did last year.

School starts Friday.

The End of Yahoo 360

I see it has been over 2 months since I set this account up, when the rumors started that yahoo360 was over. I guess it is so. Usage is way down, so I will soon start writing here. I will really miss the contacts I have made there and the blogs I have been reading, but nothing good lasts. Hopefully, blogger will be a more appropriate venue for the information I would like to share. Right now, my priority is saving anything worth saving off "Starr's Science and History Blog" and integrating some of it into Getting updates on my site is like pulling hen's teeth, but maybe someday I will be able to do something about that, too.

Why do I need another blog?

My webmaster never nomore gives me updates on my webpage, Having blogs on yahoo and myspace seems to have greatly increased the traffic to my technical/professional site.

There are rumors yahoo360 ( is closing. There is a lot of stuff on my yahoo360 page that needs to archived so that eventually I can integrate it with the webpage. My yahoo page "Starr's Science and History Blog" is perhaps too technical for the format, tho there are a few other folks on 360 with historical/tourism/naturalist blogs that I enjoy.

My myspace blog ( is more personal stuff, but some of it--weather, crop, and wildlife observations--deserves to be part of Delta Archaeology.

I first started the above blogs in February/March 2007, as i was enemployeed and needed a form of entertainement that would keep me in the habit of writing. I have less time now, but some slack hours that I need to fill. For instance, I have to spend 3 hours every MWF at the Northwest Mississippi Community College tutoring center, and I ussually, like today, don't have much to do.

If you know me, or are interested in archaeology, please let me know what direction you'd like this blog to take. I plan for it to be more strictly archaeological than the other ones.
