- Jonathan Jarrett has a post about violence, the placement of medieval coins, and one of his academic heroes.
- Over at In the Middle, Heather Blurton responds to the various praise / criticisms of her book on cannibalism. My own comments, along with puns, can be found here.
- Jeff Sypeck has a post on Charlemagne and the European identity, responding, in part, to this post by Horace Jeffery Hodges over at Gypsy Scholar.
I would have commentary on these various pieces, but classes started yesterday, so my synaptic pathways are all leading toward the fall semester. I'll try to be less dumb next week.
