Tomb of Gold-worker Found Along Nile
A 3,400-year-old tomb holding the remains of more than a dozen possibly mummified people has been discovered on Sai Island, along the Nile River in northern Sudan.

Archaeologists discovered the tomb in 2015, though it wasn't until 2017 that a team with the AcrossBorders archaeological research project fully excavated the site.



Second Viking Age Burial Found at Archaeological Site in N. Iceland
Neither boat burial has been disturbed by grave robbers, as many Viking age burial sites have been. Most Viking Age burial sites seem to have been opened up relatively early, only decades after the burial, and valuables, especially swords, removed. The reasons for such grave robbing are not known.

Archaeologists working at Dysnes have now found four different Viking age graves at the site. Two were boat burials. An archaeologist working at the dig told the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service RÚV that they expected to find more. "Everywhere we stick a shovel into the ground we seem to find something".

Someday in the Whoniverse, an evil alien invading force will threaten to disable humanity's defensive capabilities by making humans remember all of the invasions that they've bizarrely forgotten about. When people are forced to notice things like the gaping hole in Big Ben, the weird monuments, the work camps, the missing family members, the damage to personal property, etc., humanity will be reduced to quivering catatonia.

Context has identified a minor plot hole.

The Collected Short Works of Poul Anderson, Volume 3: The Saturn Game by Poul Anderson

A collection of his science fiction stories, one fantasy one, and several poems.

A sampler. There are several stories from different universes of his: Time Patrol, Operation Chaos, several of the Technic History (one apiece of Nicholas van Rijn, David Falkayn, and Dominic Flandry). Also stand-alones. Some are puzzle stories -- sometimes with tragic implications.

Uneven in quality, I think not so good as the other series. "Sam Hall", however, is one of his best and it has many other good ones.
