Snippets for March 30

MiBAC announces the launch of "Cultura Italia," a web portal for Italy's cultural heritage, which looks like it would bear some exploring (available in Italian or English).

Construction on the Museo Nazionale Archeologico di Adria has been completed after seven years; the new Roman section opened on March 28 (IGN/Adnkronos; museum pages).

Stephen Chrisomalis blogs about deciding whether or not to go to grad school in anthropology over at Glossographia... which leads me to a personal aside: I'll be starting work on a PhD in the Interdepartmental Program in Classical Art and Archaeology (IPCAA) at the University of Michigan this fall.

Congratulations on your success. Hope my remarks were not discouraging. Let's both hope the Michigan economy doesn't implode in the next little while.

Thanks, Steve.
On the contrary, it was good to reflect on the situation prior to starting and get some sense of the numbers.
