You know I do. I'm also a fan of this blog, whose author is a young archaeologist committed to engaging with the public. Check out her latest project:

The Maeander River, now known as the Büyük Menderes, flows through southwestern Turkey, connecting the ancient cultures of Anatolia with the Aegean, its twists and turns documented by Strabo and Ovid. This summer, a team of archaeologists, bloggers and photographers will explore this relatively under-researched region, providing a real-time, multimedia experience to connect the public to this ancient landscape. The project will highlight archaeology as an art and a science, conducted by individuals who seek to understand the past and present of an idyllic landscape.

Now please go read this and give it some thought. I'm going to lend my support.
