About 3 million people visit the Taj Mahal every year. This blog was viewed about 38,000 times in 2010. If it were the Taj Mahal, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it.

 

In 2010, there were 115 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 162 posts. There were 187 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 228mb. That’s about 4 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was December 7th with 2,124 views. The most popular post that day was Brothels, Baths and Babes: Prostitution in the Byzantine Holy Land.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were metafilter.com, Google Reader, facebook.com, mail.yahoo.com, and twitter.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for bettany hughes, byzantine, bethany hughes, crusades, and san vitale ravenna.
