The World of Ancient Digger Archaeology

7/14/2010 07:43:00 AM ·

I started Friends Revolution close to two years ago on a whim, looking to feature some of my friend's articles. It's now turned a corner and revolved into a mixed bag of sorts, a bag in which I adore. Here at Friends Revolution I can vent and show my offbeat side. My other two history websites are an outlet for me to express my knowledge on the subject of history and archaeology.

As many of you know, I'm the owner of the Ancient Digger, an archaeology site that takes readers on a tour of my life as an archaeology student. Just a few months ago, my blog was picked up for the blogroll on Discovery News under Archeology, giving me an entire new group of readers.


I started TravelSphere to include some articles of a more historical nature, ones in which would not fit the topic of archaeology on the Ancient Digger, but they are wonderfully fascinating just the same.



If you're looking to learn something new, and let's face it we all are, Ancient Digger Archaeology has  a special Monday Ground Up perfect for that occasion. I tend to focus on subjects the readers may not be as familiar with, teaching both you and myself something in the process. Here's the latest news for Ancient Digger, so check it out when you have some time put aside.

Monday Ground Up: Grand Master's Palace in Valletta Malta

Grand Master's Palace is located is Valletta, Malta and was the legendary seat of the Knights Hospitallerof Saint John.

Saint John's Co Cathedral

Saint John's Co Cathedral in Malta acted as the church of the Knights Hospitaller in Malta during the 11th century, protecting pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land. The Saint John's Co Cathedral was commissioned by Grand Master himself Jean de la Cassiere and the cathedral was designed by Gerolamo Cassar, the same architect that designed Grand Master's Palace.
