David Meadows alerts us that MEFRA (Mélanges de l'Ecole française de Rome. Antiquité) is available online via http://www.persee.fr -- just select it from the drop-down menu. Unfortunately, many or most images are locked out in the free version.
Over at Current Epigraphy, Gabriel Bodard gives us the run-down on a lecture by Michael Crawford on "Language, geography, and economy in early Italy."
