In the mail today came the book; To wake the dead – a renaissance merchant and the birth of archaeology by Marina Belozerskaya (2009). Published by W.W. Norton & Company.
I’ve yet to read it but it seems an interesting read about archaeology’s birth during the Italian renaissance and its “father” Cyrianus of Ancona (15th century merchant). Cyrianus of Ancona is news for me so it is with interest and curiosity I’ll read this book – I’ll get back to you with some words on the book in a few weeks.
This week and at least yet another I’ll work just north of Stockholm in Mellingeholm outside of Norrtalje.
