Woman In Pink Reclining on a Canape, Theodore LeBrun, 1819, French

Daily Thoughts 06/24/2019

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I finished reading The Horse, The Wheel and Language How Bronze Age Riders From the Eurasian Steppes Shaped the Modern World by David W. Anthony at the laundromat.  A lot of the material in this book comes from archaeology from Russia and the Balkans which was not easily available until now.  Even though this book had a lot of academic material in it, I still found it fascinating.  There was a lot about the domestication of horses, how the wheel was first used for wagons, then chariots, as well as a lot on burial practices and customs.  This book is interesting from both a historical and archeological perspective.  There is also material on linguistics which adds to the content.  I found this well worth reading.
