I’ve just had an article on the destruction of cultural property and the historiography of the Cyprus Conflict published in (open-access) Papers from the Institute of Archaeology (PIA) (alongside lots of nice stuff on digital public archaeology, the archaeology of enclosure for the London Olympic Games, Mortimer Wheeler at war and more besides).

@samarkeolog Twitter archive: political and symbolic violence elsewhere

Partly to help me (publicly) archive material from before my @conflictantiq Twitter feed on looting and destruction of cultural and community property, partly to help me clarify (for myself) what I want to document on it, I’ve copied-and-pasted(-and-hyperlinked) the (immediately or otherwise) relevant material from my @samarkeolog Twitter feed (primarily on professional, Balkan and Mediterranean matters).

It was a huge time sink; but I am utterly dedicated to uneconomic(al) activity.

@samarkeolog tweets on political and symbolic violence elsewhere (than Cyprus, Greece or Turkey) are here.

styles of political violence: protest, revolt at Syrian Embassies

The Syrian Civil War has continued and worsened. At news of the latest massacre in Homs, protests erupted around the world. I will not try to discuss events in general; others can do that better. I just want to highlight how Syrians have protested in other countries, how they have used political violence – against buildings, not people – to deny the murderous state’s legitimacy; and to physically establish a new, revolutionary democratic state (in both senses of the word).
