The Future of Archaeology Blogging

It’s the final month of Doug’s #Blogarch archaeology blogging carnival and although I didn’t write an entry for February due to a lack of free time (and inspiration), I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this community blogging event and would like to thank Doug for organizing it. It’s been a pleasure. Blogging Archaeology: Moving the 2014 SAA Blogging Session to the Blogosphere (Image credit: Doug’s ... [Continue Reading]

Happy 1st Blog Anniversary!

Can you believe it’s been a year since I launched The Archaeology of Tomb Raider? It seems like only yesterday that I wrote the obligatory “Welcome to the Blog!” post and took my first tentative steps as a new member of the Tomb Raider fansite community.

My Love-Hate Relationship With Blogging

We’re into the second month of the Blogging Archaeology blog carnival and what an amazing event it’s turning out to be.

Submit Your Questions for the 1st Archaeology of Tomb Raider Q&A!

Over the past few months, I’ve received a lot of questions from my readers. They wanted to know what I studied at university (Chinese Studies and international relations), what was my favourite Tomb Raider game (Tomb Raider 2) and why I decided to start this blog (read my explanation here). This made me think: Why don’t I hold a Q&A session? Lara, always searching for answers (Image credit: Katie’s Tomb Raider ... [Continue Reading]

The Day of Archaeology: Thoughts of an Aspiring Archaeologist

Today’s the Day of Archaeology and, despite my busy schedule, I couldn’t help getting involved in this exciting community blogging event. Here’s the short piece I wrote for this year’s event: “I often feel like I missed my true calling as an archaeologist. Despite being attracted to archaeology and ancient civilizations from an early age, I was dissuaded from a career in archaeology by teachers who warned me that ... [Continue Reading]
