My friend and NCSU archaelogist, Scott Fitzpatrick I like to refer to him as NCSU’s Indiana Jones) just made it into a cool NPR story on the absolutely giant momey (see below) formerly used on the island of Yap.  (Yes, that’s really it’s name):

Yap Stone Money

It’s really quite an interesting story on exactly what “money” is.
