Zombies: The archaeological dig

For the first time in its 100 plus year history, the Archaeological Institute of America underwrites a dig the undead can really sink their teeth into: "Zombie Attack at Hierakonpolis."

As a lapsed archaeologist who once dealt with a rabid raccoon while on an isolated dig, I can attest that the trowel technique for zombie eradication is way too close contact for my comfort. Instead, I'd advise the shovel technique for all zombie and rabid creature encounters.
