Robert Mason reports on his years of archaeological fieldwork at the Monastery of St Moses, Syria, in this blog series.
Back in 1995 ROM ornithologist Dr. Allan Baker was part of an international team that banded a small shorebird in Argentina, a Red-knot soon to become dubbed Moonbird, with a leg band with the number B95 on it.
A team bands Red Knots to assess their physical condition and survival rate as the birds begin their annual migration.
Today we are proud to report the extraordinary discovery of a new fossil deposit in Kootenay National Park.
ROM ichthyology staff led an enthusiastic team of 25 volunteers into the Rouge River on September 14th and 15thfor some serious fish collecting during the 2013 Ontario BioBlitz at Rouge Park.

Laura Ranieri's experience working with Prof. Barry Kemp CBE of Cambridge University and a small archaeology team as they excavated and partially reconstructed Akhenaten's Great Temple of Aten in Egypt.
Professor Barry Kemp CBE is an esteemed British Egyptologist who has been excavating at Amarna for 35 years. His critically acclaimed book, The City of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, was released in 2012 and is available online and in bookstores. He spoke at the ROM on September 19, 2013. I was lucky enough to spend two weeks at the site of Amarna in February of 2013. During that time, I had the opportunity to interview Prof. Kemp. The following is an edited version of that conversation. All photos copyright Laura Ranieri, 2013.
