The Smithsonian’s weblog brings interesting historical news, like this discovery of a cache of tablets written in Meroitic, one of Africa’s oldest written languages, and also of the effect climate change is having on Mongolian burial sites. 

In related news, how do we protect our rare books from the climate, going forward?

I follow a lot of authors on Twitter, including some dead ones like Shakespeare. There are many more out there, some automated, some curated by the living. It makes for some fun interruptions in the day.
