Teutonic Treasures and Archaeology

When I'm not blogging here, I often do guest blogs at other sites. Recently I did a post for the Black Gate blog on The Church and Treasury of the Teutonic Order, Vienna. Black Gate is a leading fantasy magazine that runs a great blog on all things genre. Last year they published my fantasy novella The Quintessence of Absence, which you can download as a free ebook.

I'm also now the "Archaeology Expert" on the The Scout Project, a fun blog run by former Gadling coworker Libby Zay. It covers all sorts of subjects and encourages readers to go out and explore for themselves. She just interviewed me about my archaeology career.

Expect to see more from me on both these blogs in coming weeks!


  1. Replies
    1. Yep! They were thought to be adders' or dragons' tongues and were used to detect and neutralize poisons.

  2. Sounds like alchemy. Hubs mentioned that rhino horns were also thought to draw poison out. (due to the horn's fiber content). Interesting, Sean!

    Will check out the blogs you mention. I do like to read about your archaeology finds.
