Western Digs

Paleontology blog Western Digs was last featured in the 02-10-2017 Scout Report, since then nearly 20 new articles have been posted to the website, offering readers plenty of new content. Anyone fascinated by the fields of paleontology and archeology will love Western Digs, a science news site devoted to research and developments in these fields from the western United States. Created by Blake de Pastino, a science journalist who has worked for National Geographic and YouTube's Scishow, Western Digs addresses a variety of topics, including Rock Art, cultural resources, and new clues into the lives of people who lived in the American West over the past several centuries. Paleontology often takes center stage; for example, a recent article, "New Feathered Dinosaur From New Mexico Was Among the 'Last of the Raptors,'" highlights recent fossil discoveries. Each article is written in an engaging, accessible style and includes embedded links to research articles and other related resources for those interested in further reading. For reader convenience, articles are cataloged in a variety of ways: by species, location, and time period.
