Dr. Alex Jones, founder and director of Archaeology in the Community, joins the show to talk about her work in the very public-facing nonprofit organization. Learn what makes AITC a model for how public archaeology should be done.
Today on the podcast Richie Cruz, Stephen Wagner, and Chris Webster discuss a blog post that Chris wrote over four years about about collecting "arrowheads" and why you shouldn't do it.

On today's episode we learn about a historic artifact found often on archaeological sites - the insulator. Available in glass or ceramic :)
Today’s episode features Emily Van Alst, Sihasapa Lakota descent, talking about indigenous and community based archaeology in Japan, Peru, Spain, and Alaska. She also talks about NAGPRA from museum, international, and indigenous perspectives. Finally we talk about how archaeology can be used to benefit indigenous communities and vice versa. Emily specifically discusses zooarchaeology and rock art as areas that are fruitful for indigenous archaeology, especially in the work she would like to pursue in the Northern Plains in her upcoming PhD program at Indiana University where she will be working with Learning NAGPRA.

On today's show, Chris Webster talks about being a real archaeologist and what you can do as a non-archaeologist to find out what that means.
On today's episode we talk about whether you should wear headphones in the field. And, if you do, what you should wear!

As always, ask your company's representative about their headphone policy before you decide to use them.
On today's show we learn about the Great Basin. It's a unique place in the American West and has interesting geology and a fantastic and complex history.

Archaeology and Ale is a monthly series of talks presented by Archaeology in the City, part of the University of Sheffield Archaeology Department’s outreach programme.
Archaeology and Ale proudly presents - Lee Eales, and his talk “Tasting the past: Unearthing the Chemistry of Medieval Beer”. This talk took place on Thursday 12th January upstairs at the Red Deer pub in Sheffield.
Lee Eales received a B.A. degree in classical archaeology from the University of Sheffield. He began a career as a commercial field archaeologist with Trent and Peak archaeological unit. After gaining experience with a number of commercial units both in the United Kingdom and Europe he took up a post as a supervisor to undergraduate students in the Archaeology Degree program at Sheffield, specializing in medieval archaeology. In June 2014 he took up a position as a postgraduate research assistant in analytical chemistry, also at the University of Sheffield, specializing in chemical residue analysis of medieval pottery. In particular he uses matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry imaging (MALDI-MSi) to profile the residue of organic materials captured both on and in the fabric of ceramics dating to the medieval period. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate on a project titled “The Sensory Archaeology of Medieval Brewing, Its Ingredients and Technology. (from http://www.worldbrewingcongress.org/congress/Abstracts/Pages/063.aspx )
An academic version of this talk was presented by Lee Eales, Duncan Cameron and Robert Falconer at the World Brewing Congress in August 2016, in Denver, Colorado. The abstract is available here: http://www.worldbrewingcongress.org/congress/Abstracts/Pages/063.aspx

This episode describes bison hunting on the North American Great Plains. Bison is the scientific name for animals that most people know as buffalo. The Great Plains is a geographic region of western Canada, the United States, and Mexico that contains prime bison habitat. Many different species of grasses on the Great Plains supported large herds of bison until they were nearly hunted to extinction during the late 1800’s. Before then, bison were an important food resource for Native American groups.
Prehistoric hunters were successful because they understood bison herd behavior and they used knowledge of the landscape to trap and kill bison.

Hello Everyone, this has been a long time coming - I have decided to retire for the moment this show. It won't mean the end of my work here at the network, in fact I will be more involved behind the scenes. I have things change in my life which means I don't have the same kind of time to record.
I will still be on Twitter and be available by email, so don't hesitate to contact me.
