World Archaeology at the Pitt Rivers Museum: a characterization Between 2009 and 2012, Dr Dan Hicks (Curator of Archaeology and University Lecturer) led a collections-based project that developed the first overview of the range and research potential of the Museum's world archaeology collections. The project - Characterizing the World Archaeology Collections of the Pitt Rivers Museum - was funded by a grant of £116,325 from the John Fell OUP Research Fund and with additional support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (IfA Workplace Bursaries scheme) and the Boise Fund. The project resulted in a book, published in March 2013 as both hard copy and in open access form. This volume - World Archaeology at the Pitt Rivers Museum: a characterization - introduces the range, history and significance of the archaeological collections of the Pitt Rivers Museum, and sets out priorities for future research into the collection. You can order the book from Archaeopress

Art for All by Chad Kouri My fellow Uprise artist Chad Kouri recently completed a really cool project called Art for All. The concept is pretty easy. You simply text your first and last name to a special phone number +1 (312) 635-4223 and a completely unique digital piece of art by Chad will be texted back to you. You will have the option to purchase it as a print in various sizes, bringing the digital realm into real life. Here’s my piece: I talked to Chad to find out more about how he came up with this clever idea.
