A stone crannog found in Derry North Ireland ...

 https://www.bbc.com/news/av/uk-northern-ireland-61986065

The very short article provides a brief video showing what it currently looks like, and how it might have looked around the time it was built.

Horses, and a human found at Mt. St. Jean, and a search of the reverse slope at Waterloo ...

With the pandemic delaying the excavations at the Battle of Waterloo, archaeologists have now returned in 2022 to the site, and begun excavating what is understood as having been the British field hospital at the Mt. St. Jean farm.  Besides the human remains of limbs discard after amputations occurred, there have also been found horse (quite the hypothesis in the video on those), and the skeletal remains of only the second human to be be found at the battlefield.

While on youtube today I came across a channel called Miniminuteman where they dispel historical conspiracies. The video I watched was about the Baghdad Battery (which should be properly known as the "Parthian Jars") and it was great. Interestingly enough there was a recommended response video by Artifactually Speaking where an archaeologist in that specific field of study watched the Miniminuteman video and brings in his expertise to provide more information about the topic and also help dispel the conspiracy. He even corrects the Miniminuteman several times and provides additional context to the whole subject. Really worth a watch! Especially Artifactually Speaking's video which provided a lot of the context that Minimuntemen couldn't find but was searching for.

Miniminuteman video:

Artifactually Speaking's reaction video:

The TL;DR:
They were most likely magic jars with spells and incantations in them. More than likely to keep away evil spirits from the home.

A new chamber has been located inside one of the Great Pyramids in Eygpt ...

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHHQdK1AtTc

... there is already speculation that an additional discovery could be made relatively soon, and some are saying the chamber was only being used to reduce the Pyramid's overall weight.

Not sure this counts as archaeology, although an interesting interpretation of a possible encounter between a T-Rex and two Quetzalcoatus ...

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWGnlAQsRaE

The Chicago Field Museum has actual fossils of Quetzalcoatus, and a display of what one might have looked like as well.  These were another pre-historic creature that would have towered over humans.
