Five years have passed since I defended my Licentiate thesis Caught Somewhere in Time: Polyagentive Archaeology in the Maya Lowlands. The book was about the crucial importance of time in archaeology, which I have discussed in some earlier posts. I took the title from a song by Iron Maiden’s 1986 album Somewhere in Time. It is not my favorite Maiden song (that would be For the Greater Good of God), but it fit the contents of my thesis pretty well. Anyway, I believe my old thesis is one of very few academic theses beginning with a song composed by Steve Harris.
