Looking Back at 100 Episodes - ArchaeoTech 100

Archaeology and Technology.jpg

Welcome to the ArchaeoTech Podcast. Today is February 26th, 2019, so put on your party hat because we're recording the 100th episode. This is Paul Zimmerman, your host for for this milestone, along with my co-host (the pod's usual host) Chris Webster. We're turning the tables since we don't have a "tech" topic per se, but instead we're going to do a little navel gazing and look at the history of this podcast to see what kinds of lessons we can learn about podcasting and public archaeology in general.

Drones in Archaeology - ArchaeoTech 44

We got four Chris's (what are the odds!), and a couple non-Chris's on this one! This panel breaks down some of the details of drones in archaeology we haven't covered before on this show. Dr. Sally Applin's research specifically focuses on the "sociability" of drones in human environments. We tackle the legal, ethical, and social hurdles to effective drone implementation and ultimately question if it's all worth it.

High-Tech Petroglyph Recording - ArchaeoTech 35

Apologies for being a few days late - had to do some extra work with this one.

PaleoWest, a CRM firm based in the Southwest, won a contract to record 200 meters of the 1600-meter-long Little Petroglyph Canyon located on the ultra-secure China Lake Naval Weapons Station in Ridgecrest, California. The Navy wants to record the entire massive petroglyph assemblage but isn't really sure of what the best, most efficient way to do that is. So, PaleoWest was hired to test out different technologies and report on their findings. We talk to the PaleoWest Chief of Operations, Shawn Fehrenbach, about their efforts.

We also compare KAP with drone photography. At the end of the show we cover three apps that can help with photography and navigation.
