Not so much a Friday so excuse the lateness of this post. Since I don't have much time, I'll simply post the latest developments in brief.
- Uncovering the Great Theater of Apamea : New discoveries are being made at the great Roman Theater of Apamea in Syria
- And for the question of the post, Is Tudor England a myth ? Historians debate the use of the term 'Tudors' believing it was not so commonly used in the 16th century as previously thought.
- An exorcism ? 'Vampire' Plague Victim Spurs Gruesome Debate amongst Archaeologists.

The controversy begins with a mass grave of 16th-century plague victims on the Venetian island of Nuovo Lazzaretto.
The remains of a woman there apparently had a brick shoved in her mouth, perhaps to exorcise the corpse in what may have been the first vampire burial known in archaeology, said forensic anthropologist Matteo Borrini of the University of Florence in Italy.
