Blog Posts to check out

The posts listed below all made good grades.  None of them were perfect – you’ll notice that in some the reference list was missing bits and pieces.  In others, images were not cited correctly.

There are a few factual errors scattered around. Many are longer than what I’m asking you to do.  That being said, the posts earned As or A-s

eWeber down 10/7 – 10/9

IT Division just announced that the WSU website and eportal will be down from Noon (12 PM) on Friday, 7 Oct to approximately 5 PM on Sunday, 9 Oct.

You will still be able to access the class, the library, Wildcat mail, etc., but you must use the direct links.

There is usually a page with links in place of eWeber, but I’ve copied the links below, just in case.

What song the Sirens sang

“What song the Syrens sang, or what name Achilles assumed when he hid himself among women, though puzzling questions, are not beyond all conjecture.” *

Welcome to the reboot of “What song the Sirens sang.”   This version of the blog will feature posts from students in my various ancient history classes plus occasional posts from me.   I don’t teach every semester, so there will be periods of inactivity.

So, stop by, read, enjoy and perhaps learn.


* From: Sir Thomas Browne. Hydriotaphia (Urn Burial). Ch.5.4, 1658. Ch.5.4, 1658.
