Jabba the Toad

On Thursday, I was invited to give a lecture on ancient Nubia at Appalachian State University.  When I talked about life on the dig at Dangeil, I mentioned Jabba the Toad and his other amphibian friends who live in our shower room. Jabba is a really big toad, but the others are smaller and hang out by the water drain. They sit there, covered in suds, staring at us with their big googly eyes while we’re showering. Jabba turned out to be of great interest to a young, budding archaeologist who attended the lecture.

Here’s Jabba the Toad… as seen on the Dangeil Twitter feed (where I got the photo for my presentation).

  1. Jabba was a star! But not the only feature of interest in this fact filled talk about the exotic land of Nubia, and the echoes of its fascinating culture!
