A Journey to Ancient Pawneeland - HeVo 29

Heritage Voices.jpeg

On today’s podcast Jessica hosts Roger Echo-Hawk, a writer / artist, and a citizen of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma. We discussed his role in the origin story of what became Indigenous archaeology – the study of oral tradition; the unfolding racial Indian repatriation movement; the interfacing of archaeology and Indian Country; and the history of race and the rethinking of racial identity systems.

Good, Fast, Cheap: Pick Two - ArchaeoTech 105

ArchaeoTech.jpeg

Today Chris and Paul talk about a fairly well-known concept in technology circles called, “Good, Fast, Cheap, Pick 2.” What it means is that often you don’t get all three in something you’re using. One of those is always sacrificed to make the other two work. Well, is that true? Are things that violate this principle? Let’s talk about it.

Of Koobi Fora and Cathedrals with Ella Beaudoin - Ruins 02

Ruins.jpeg

Today's guest is someone who we wanted to snag as early as possible, based on her ability to connect with the public.

Ella Beaudoin got started in anthropology at American University, in Washington DC.

She cut her scientific teeth in Kenya as part of the Koobi Fora field School @koobiforafieldschool. The Koobi Fora region is one of the most prolific fossil bearing regions in the world and possibly home to the oldest instances of the use of fire by our hominid ancestors.

She is currently a contractor at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, where she works to help engage and teach the public about evolution and archaeology.

As the goal of this podcast is to connect non-archaeologists with our science, we are super excited to talk with her tonight.

You can follow her twitter at @ella_beaudoinand her instagram @timetravelerinhikingboots.

The Cowboys of Science with Spencer Pelton - Ruins 01

Ruins.jpeg

Spencer is one of the most talented, accomplished, and brilliant archaeologists in the country. The dude has over a dozen publications and literally just got his PhD last year.

Anyone that knows Spencer will tell you that he’s one of the most enjoyable people to be around and was a mentor to a lot of us during our time at Wyoming.

Spencer’s research varies from lithic technology, hunter-gatherer ecology, to human evolution, and his dissertation focused on hominid thermal regulation.

The list of his accomplishments would fill this page, so we’ll let his smooth, Johnny Cash-like drawl tell you his life story! We’re super excited.

Determining Eligibility - CRMArch 163

CRM Archaeology.jpeg

Using criteria from the National Park Service and other sources archaeologists are tasked to determine an archaeological resource's eligibility for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. This isn't so easy sometimes and we have criteria and integrity considerations to look at. This episode is a discussion of that process and the issues that come up when trying to do it.

Reconstructing a Lost Town with Edward Gonzalez-Tennant - ArchaeoTech 104

ArchaeoTech.jpeg

Edward Gonzalez-Tennant is a GIS and open source digital archaeology expert. We brought him on to talk about GIS but the conversation quickly turned to his work at historic Rosewood - a predominantly African-American town in Florida that was destroyed by riots and the Rosewood Massacre over 100 years ago. EGT is using digital archaeology and traditional methods to reconstruct this town so visitors and descendants can know what it was like to live in that area at in the early 1900s.

I Agree with Graham Hancock!? - Modern Myth Moments - 1

Ok, before you type your strongly worded tweet or you decide to #cancel me please give me a moment to explain. As has been highlighted recently, archaeology has a problem with impact with getting the information out there. Perhaps there’s nothing wrong with the food, its just the service isn’t what you want.

With his new book released Graham Hancock appeared on the Joe Rogan show and obviously talked at length about his book, he made some salient points and importantly he tied himself to those ideas and that’s where I think we can learn something about outreach.

If you want to argue, tweet at me or send me an email:

The Modern Myth Of Nuclear Power with Martin Pfeiffer - Modern Myth - Episode 2

Quick, Marty, we gotta save the world! From what!? From nuclear annihilation.

Perhaps not so grand, but in this Modern Myth episode we get to grips with the ideas behind nuclear weapons and the boogeyman of radiation, Martin Pfeiffer is a PhD student researching nuclear anthropology and loves going into musems to #LickTheBomb, (he tells us how their casings taste) and what it means to be an activist for denuclearisation of the modern world.

Career Monitors and Mental Health - Ep 162

CRM Archaeology.jpeg

In some areas of the country archaeologists are monitoring for construction projects. That’s not unique. What is unique is that some of these archaeologists are monitoring for years at a time and they’re losing their skills. We talk about that, and, mental health issues in contract archaeology.

Integrating Aerial and Underwater Data for Archaeology - ArchaeoTech 103

ArchaeoTech.jpeg

In a recent book chapter, linked below, the integration of underwater and terrestrial archaeology was discussed. It got Chris and Paul thinking about those two spaces and how they are linked in the archaeological record. When seas fluctuate sites are buried and revealed and thinking about them together can help archaeologists interpret the past.
