Another something very cool

That would be the Giza Archives Project, which is storing and making available tens of the thousands of documents from almost a century of archeology at the Giza Plateau, home of Egypt's pyramids. It's a joint project of Boston's Museum of Fine Arts and Harvard University.

POSTSCRIPT: Are there too many amateur archeology crackpots out there? That's what Eric Cline of George Washington University thinks (requires registration). Amateurs can contribute a lot to archeology, as they still do to astronomy - it's not, and probably never will be, a fully professionalized subject. But there's no substitute for doing your homework - and eating your broccoli :)
