I have a new post up at Cliopatria, going into the background of the Director at Pennsylvania University Museum who’s signally just cut funding for eighteen separate research posts and thus effectively halted several of their famous international programs. It wouldn’t be anything to do with the medieval period, however, as they don’t really do much of that there, except that that Director is Richard Hodges. So I’ve been explaining why that’s weird and you could read it if you wanted. They don’t support image captions, though, so the Hard Times token has to stay here. Don’t say I never do anything for you, or something. Meanwhile, stay tuned for more normal content tomorrow.
