New York in 1911 and Learning from History - TAS 43

Beyond The History and Archaeology Headlines.jpg

Chris saw a video several months ago that really challenged his preconceived notions of what the past was like. That video was a promotional video about New York City shot in 1911. There is no commentary, it's not scripted, and it just looks like cut-together scenes of life in the big city in that year. It's fascinating. April and Chris spend most of the show talking about that video, what it means, and what we can learn from it. They also talk about the rephotography movement and other representations of the past.

Live Panel on Bears Ears National Monument - Heritage Voices 15

Trival Views of History, Anthropology and Archaeology.jpg

On March 3rd, 2018 Lyle hosted a live panel on Bears Ears National Monument with indigenous activists at Friends of Cedar Mesa’s annual Celebrate Cedar Mesa event. In addition to Lyle himself, the panel also featured Regina Lopez-Whiteskunk (former co-chair of the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition and Ute Mountain Ute Tribal Councilwoman and current Education Coordinator for the Ute Indian Museum), Ed Kabotie (Hopi/Tewa artist, musician, and activist) and Angelo Baca (Diné/Hopi, Filmmaker and Cultural Resources Coordinator for Utah Diné Bikeyah). The four talk about their experiences with Bears Ears National Monument, but also use the topic to discuss larger issues, including tribal sovereignty, indigenous and Western science collaborations, boarding schools, and how we can all be better activists. Their heartfelt words led to a standing ovation and an encore. Thank you again to Friends of Cedar Mesa and to all the panelists.

The time of the Indian expert is over. It’s time for expert Indians.

8 Bit Test Pit - 8BTP 0

Introducing a new podcast from the Archaeology Podcast Network!

Episode 1 will be out Friday, July 29, 2016!

8Bit Test Pit is here to put Archaeogaming on the map. Hosted by key players in the archaeogaming world, 8Bit Test Pit sets out to explain the weird and wonderful connections between the study of our past and the virtual worlds we like to explore.  8Bit Test Pit breaks the field of Archaeologaming into three accessible formats: 

  • Main Campaign – is the monthly show featuring a panel discussion, led by Andrew Reinhard, Meghan Dennis, and Tara Copplestone, on a number of issues and topics all of which revolve around the intersection of archaeology and gaming. Everything from coding practices to Ethics in and out of the game realty.
  • Dug Up Content – is bit-sized 15 minute episodes, released every 6 weeks, filled to the brim with information, covering key terms and concepts in and about the field of Archaeogaming. These will inform and educate, in the time it takes to load your saved game.
  • Archaeodeathmatch – Two archaeogamers enter, one archaeogamer leaves. When a field is new, disagreements are going to happen. Here in the virtual area, two archaeologists debate a topic related to archaeologaming. Hosted about every 5 weeks, or as needed. 

Archaeogaming covers not only the study of archaeology in videogames but also the study of games as material culture. Some of our hosts you already may know, Andrew Reinhard – who featured in the documentary ATARI: Game Over, Tara Coppelstone – who studies how games are made through an archaeological lens, and Meghan Dennis – a PhD candidate at University of York who is studying ethics in videogames, plus many more interesting and insightful players in the archaeogaming world are ready load. The show is hosted and produced by Sara Head of Archyfantasies and Tristan Boyle, content creator on the Archaeology Podcast Network.
