Lajodanssysl (ButterBase 1.3)

Andrew Reinhard
ButterBase 1.3, created by ButterForTheKing, one of the Galactic Hub's earliest settlers, was built post-Atlas Rises after the cataclysm wiped out his prior, Pathfinder-era base on a nearby planet in the same system, destroying his "Temple of the Sun". As a stopgap prior to moving to the new Galactic Hub, BFTK created a modest base on a lush world in his home system, ultimately leaving to join his community and leaving a farewell communication station...

Horner ("Tohoulvaldou"-Au�enposten)

Andrew Reinhard
"Tohoulvaldou"-Au�enposten is one of the rare player constructions that can be identified as a tomb. It is an astonishingly intricate construction hinting at the level of creativity No Man's Sky players could achieve. Six communication stations rest in a row, buried by the Atlas Rises update. The tomb itself was buried halfway by the cataclysm. Halfway through the exploration of the site, a system crash repositioned the tomb halfway across the planet, restoring it to...

Feeding Anglo-Saxon England (FeedSax): The Bioarchaeology of an Agricultural Revolution

Amy Bogaard, Mark McKerracher, Christopher Ramsey, Michael Charles, Emily Forster, Helena Hamerow, John Hodgson, Matilda Holmes, Samantha Neil, Elizabeth Stroud, Richard Thomas & Tanja Zerl
Between the 8th and 13th centuries, the population of England grew to unprecedented levels. This could not have happened without a major expansion of arable farming, a development that culminated in the emergence of open field agriculture. As well as feeding more mouths, the production of large cereal surpluses sustained the growth of towns and markets, and fuelled wealth inequality and the rise of lordship. Early medieval England thus witnessed a golden age of arable...

Ceramics and Society: Early Tana Tradition and the Swahili Coast

Stephanie Wynne-Jones & Jeffrey Fleisher
Locally-produced ceramics are the most ubiquitous find on archaeological sites in East Africa and their study offers the potential to develop a robust understanding of activity and interaction within and between sites.

Hova Rises (Bez-Harr Embassy)

Andrew Reinhard
The Bez-Harr Embassy is a civic building in the shape of an inverted glass pyramid created by player art-nik. Despite the fact that this is another example of a buried, glitched base that relocated and rebuilt itself between the first visit by Andrew Reinhard in 2017 and final visit post-Atlas Rises in 2018, the site is of extreme significance to the early history of the Galactic Hub player enclave. In 2017, KingJamesHova created the so-called...
