This blog is predominately a travel blog about my adventures around the world. It is the best way for me to share my adventures with my family and friends. For the majority of the time i Was talking about my archaeology travels but this summer I am going north to Alaska! (you also need this song in your head when you say that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSt0NEESrUA)

So follow along as my wife and I take on two months of #vanlife. I will speak on topics from traveling, national parks, and maybe even some archaeology! I also post lots of pictures on my instagram page: murlo.handy

In the past I spoke a lot about archaeology here and I ran a small high school program where students get to work at Poggio Civitate. They kept a blog of their time here: https://rjhsfieldschool.wordpress.com/ and here https://regisjesuit.com/archaeology.

If you want an archaeology blog Dr. Shipley has a great one:  http://potsplacesstonesbones.blogspot.com/. As does the Cosa excavations:  http://cosaexcavations.blogspot.com/.

I worked for 10 years as a field archaeologist in Italy and 3 different sights (Poggio Civitate, Villa of Maxentius, Cosa). And continue to travel all over Italy and the rest of the world. I love to talk about my travels so feel free to leave a comment here.

Thanks for checking out the blog.

    Hello Andrew.

    Near my home, deep in the woods, there is an ancient etruscan inscription carved on a rock by a creek that no one actually translated as of now.

    Can you identify and translate it?

    This is the picture of it, taken from a book on the subject: https://imgur.com/a/Rn590SA

      I would need a lot more information. Where is it in Tuscany (just a city it fine)? This is important because there is a difference in letters used between certain areas. I would also need to know what it is on. Do you have a picture of the object? A lot of inscriptions are identifying the object. Also what book did you get the drawing from? That might give me a clue about the word.

      Right now I recognize some of the letters but they make no sense.
