Happy New Year, Ancient Explorers! I hope you had a terrific break.

I have been quiet for a little while, as I have been busy finishing a new book, a volume of papers called Yachay Wasi: The House of Knowledge of I.S. Farrington, with my fellow ancient explorers, Rebecca Parkes, Damian Tybussek and Christine Gant-Thompson. This new book is, in fact, a festschrift for our postgraduate supervisor, Ian Farrington, who taught at the Australian National University for over 25 years, retiring in 2012. Meanwhile, he has conducted research in South America for almost 40 years.

Yachay Wasi includes chapters on a wide range of topics within the disciplines of history and archaeology across three regions: Australia, Europe and South America. I have myself included a review of current approaches to Inka sacrifice based on my PhD research.

I extend my sincerest thanks to our families and friends for their support over the last six years and also to Lantern Heritage for its financial support.

The book is now available through BAR Publishing, based in Oxford, England.
