A Food Prehistory Blog

Dorian Q. Fuller is the pre-eminent pre-historian of Neolithic (and later) crop domestication and diffusion, aka an archaeobotanist, in the world today.  And, he has a blogish thing reviewing the latest scholarly work in the field and well as a more ordinary blog on the same subject, both of which are well worth the read. 

His research frequently provides relatively definitive resolutions of questions that other aspects of material culture, physical anthropology and genetics cannot to questions regarding the origins and interrelationships of agricultural cultures traced via the origins of their crops.
