In preparation for the Congress of Byzantine scholars in Paris that was
going on last week, the fine folks over on archaeology actually published
articles in English! Some very interesting stuff. Just look for the
titles in English (there are several down the page).
Also, take a look at http://archaeology.kiev.ua/underwater/zelenko5.htm
describing Ship-wreck of 13 century at the Black Sea by Soldaya -- lots of
spending way too much time on the net today.
