Archaeo+Malacology Group Newsletter No. 9

The AMG Newsletter No. 9 (and the previous 4 issues) is available here. This issue contains articles on the use of dog whelks (Nucella lapillus) to produce purple dye, neolithic ornaments made from shells of the spiny oyster Spondylus gaederopus, the clausiliid snail Papillifera papillaris (by yours truly), an obituary for Nicholas Shackleton (1937-2006) and other useful bits of information on mollusks and archaeology.
