explorator 17.29                            November 2, 2014
================================================================
Editor's note: Most urls should be active for at least eight
hours from the time of publication.

For your computer's protection, Explorator is sent in plain text
and NEVER has attachments (other than the odd youtube video).
Be suspicious of any Explorator which arrives otherwise!!!

n.b. It has come to my attention that several mail carriers are
now filtering mail with lots of links (like explorator) as spam.
You might want to add Explorator to your address book or whatever
to ensure it gets through.
================================================================
================================================================
Thanks to Arthur Shippee, Dave Sowdon, Edward Rockstein, Kurt Theis,
John McMahon, Barnea Selavan, Joseph Lauer, Mike Ruggeri,
Wilfried Zankl, Hernan Astudillo, David Critchley,  Rick Heli,
Frank MacKay, Allan Brockway, Bob Heuman, A Landreau,
Richard Campbell,Richard C. Griffiths, and Ross W. Sargent for
headses upses this week (as always hoping I have left no one out).

n.b. The problem with dead links seems to be -- for the most part --
specific to yahoomail users (although some .edu addresses seem
also to be affected). If this doesn't apply to you, all I can
suggest is that you cut and paste the following link to read it
via yahoo's site:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/aerial-images-shed-light-on-mysterious-middle-east-stone-circles-9832968.html

EXPLORATOR is a free weekly newsletter bringing you the latest
news of archaeological finds, historical research and the like.
Various on-line news and magazine sources are scoured for news of
the 'ancient world' (broadly construed: practically anything relating
to archaeology or history up to World War II or so is fair
game) and every Sunday they are delivered to your mailbox free of
charge!
