Archaeo+Malacology Group Newsletter No. 20

The AMG Newsletter No. 20 is available here.

This issue starts off with yet another report on the land snail Papillifera papillaris. This time, Anette Rosenbauer is reporting it for the 1st time from Germany. The species, a native of Italy, was found in some stone-working yards.

There are also several articles by Henk Mienis about various mollusk finds at archaeological sites in Israel. In one of them, Mienis reports a mysterious accumulation of the shells of the marine snail Columbella rustica at a ruin.

In addition, there are the usual book reviews, lists of recently published relevant articles and the announcements of upcoming meetings.
