The ArchiveThis document represents an archive of the posts preparedfor the Archaeology of the Mediterranean World Blog. Thereare no images and links to other sites and embedded contentno longer functions. This is a static archive. The originalcontext for these posts was the web which is a dynamicspace. As a result, I have made no effort to reproduce orcapture the network that these blog posts relied upon forsignificance or meaning. The links preserved in the posts,however, may provide a kind of breadcrumbs from a futureresearcher. The Internet Archive captured three images ofmy blog in 2007 (October 16, November 12, December 24).There are no images in the archive of the blog.The blog began in the spring of 2007 and continued untilthe end of 2010.  It consists of 857 posts and 455comments.  During its time live at typepad.com, it receivedwell over 110,000 views and had an average of over 80 pageviews a day.  These are miniscule numbers in the broaderworld of the internet, but they do show that the blog had aconsistent audience and grew steadily over its life.As of this writing, an online version of this archiveexists (http://mediterraneanworldarchive.wordpress.com/)but I am not active curating this web site. There arebroken links that will remain broken and links to mediathat the current hosting service will not support.    Archaeology of the Mediterranean World Archive: Volume 1 byWilliam R.
