Pastoralism is the future! What a beautiful animation explaining the role of pastoralism in combating climatic variabilities and helping future sustainable food goals #IYRPforsustainability #IYRPforclimate #IYRPforlife https://t.co/2J2IrGYi9W

This is a pretty amazing animation for anyone teaching or researching pastoralism and speaks to a lot of what we're trying to say in #AfricanArchaeology https://t.co/TiFsUkFnDj

Here is a well at the important ancient Egyptian port city of Berenike being excavated. 

Research into the well suggests the city was abandoned volcano-induced climate change caused it to dry up ~200 BC.

These are grinding stones found at the ~3,000-year-old site of Luxmanda in 🇹🇿. 

Their size would make them difficult to move, which is odd as the inhabitants were mobile herders.

This is rock art depicting figures that appear to be wearing buffalo heads recently identified in 🇹🇿. 🐃

Tanzania has lots of rock art long known to local communities but not yet documented.

Quoted @isisnaucratis

Consider signing this letter in support of Egyptology Lecturer Robert Morkot, who was terminated by U.Exeter "based on research and failure to submit a book manuscript to a publisher by a set date" 🤯 IN A PANDEMIC! #Classicstwitter #Academia #Archaeology https://t.co/OhclHajcwx

Robert Morkot has been fired from the Archaeology Dept. here at the Uni of Exeter for missing a publisher's manuscript deadline....This is appalling & sets a terrible precedent, & at a time the govt are cutting arch funding...

Thrilled to have this now out- the product of over 6 years work with a great team of collaborators. Early herders in northern Tanzania played a major role in reshaping soils on the Mbulu Plateau. (1/5) #archaeology #SoilHealth https://t.co/fFwQhfJlK1

Great thread explaining how this new study by @Mjstoroz & @stgoldste at the awesome site of Luxmanda is helping to demonstrate durable & positive ecological legacies of #pastoralism #AfricanArchaeology @kate_grillo @AGidna https://t.co/6TE4zAx8Ce

Just finished listening in on this fantastic panel on the future of #decolonize #AfricanArchaeology. It is imperative-really for the future of the disc.-that we help "Africans be fishermen" in terms of arch-sci as prof @chirikure put it. Great convo. https://t.co/Dbe1XCfVWk
