I will start with an addendum to last week’s update. Literature professor and amateur archaeologist Dr. Pendergast went by more than one first name. The majority of his publications are under the first name of John, while his friends and colleges typically called him James or Jay. This can get a little confusing and difficult to work with, because the names are sometimes used interchangeably. Even more confusing, some of his later publications were also under the name Jay.
Not too much more to add for this update. As expected, there are many news articles, which are unsurprisingly slowing things down. I do not plan to work through each, if only to avoid redundancy.
