Today's episode is an attempt to take on the #Archmanifesto "The Archaeologist's Manifesto" - a political slice of archaeology. In this episode, Tristan talks the new Stonehenge tunnel, why the past is important and why the discussion about what we support in history through the allocation of resources. Shout out to Evelyn on twitter who answered the hashtag #archmedia (@dingledodie77)
Welcome to the new age of the Anarchaeologist Podcast. Tristan is back to destory the very gorund beneath our feet with his approach to the gap between the past, the present and the future.
Full episode released 18/01/17
Joining together in an all too rare occurrence, Tristan and Chris tackle the use of science in CRM archaeology. Since both podcasters arrived to archaeology from science based backgrounds, it was important to establish how that may have influenced how Chris views his field projects and how this became an inspiration for the Professional Certification for Scientists, a new learning website dedicated to bringing knowledge and credibility to those who work in the field or in the lab.

The world has gone mad! At once decrying the death of heritage in the middle east by terrorist hands and then squeezing in the end of archaeology in the uk as we know it. I, the anarchaeologist, will topple the tyrannical narrative and try show the other side of the argument and why archaeologists over the uk are worried.

"The Echoes of the Past speak louder than any voice I hear right now" - Farewell Mona Lisa, The Dillinger Escape Plan
Words that have much meaning in today's iconophilic traditionalist society where the comical giants of politics saunter around proclaiming that simplybuilding 3D scanned monuments will somehow undo the damage done. Well don't hold out for any sympathies, because what the Palmyra reconstruction shows is that monumental heritage is more important than people.
If there are unjustices and debate in the public sphere concerning the past then let us as archaeologists not shy away, let us challenge the status quo, let's bring humanity back into the centre of archaeology.
Guess who’s back with a brand new track, Tristan opens his first line of attack; pointing out his inability to hold to his own schedule. In this episode the Anarchaeologists meanders through the last few months including talking about the Hidden Heritage Conference in Dorchester and the CIfA conference in Leicester, mentioning people he’s met and things he has picked up. Sorry about the delay in releases, I will catch up very quickly, there is a lot of people on my pod list right now.

Today’s episode takes a look at the unknown world of archaeology as experienced by people with disabilities and some of the barriers they face when it comes to working and learning in the archaeological and historical sector. I speak with Theresa O’Mahony of Enabled Archaeology, a post-graduate student at University College London, who has used her own experiences to motivate herself to research how those with disabilities are treated. In this episode she discuss some of her preliminary findings and shares some sad and shocking stories she has heard from those she has interviewed for her research. Theresa is looking to set up a foundation to support those she calls Enabled Archaeologists, this term applying to both disabled/enabled and able-bodied people.

David Bell and I sit down to talk theory, being a mature student and most importantly of all, swords. We meander through the physical parts of archaeology and how an engineer became an archaeologist studying swords. And of course David explains the difference between a knife, a halberd and a rapier.
Jill Almond is studying architecture in asylums in both Ireland and Scotland and compairing the uses of space to create different environment. We discuss what archaeology is and the wide variety of archaeologists that exist within the research environment.
You could say I am in my element with this weeks show; part one of 2 of the wonderful conversations that I had with the wonderful people from Queen's University Belfast Geography Archaeology Paleoecology Group.
In this weeks episode, we go for the strangest of the strange and oldest of the old, Göbekli Tepe. This site situated in Southern Turkey near the border with Syria and is argueably the oldest momument building by humans, around 11,000 years old. The oldest 14C date is around 9,700-9,300 calBC. Not only is the age interesting but the style and extent of the site are something to be behold. Jens Notroff, is a real life Indiana Jones and archaeologist based in Berlin. He has been working on Göbekli Tepe the last number of years and has seen many amazing pieces evolve from the earth. I chat to him about Göbekli Tepe and digging so close to Syria. For our German listeners, there is a little treat at the end (I apologise in advance for my terrible German), we talk how to become an archaeologist in Germany and how archaeology is viewed. Grab your Lederhosen, sit back and enjoy this episode of Anarchaeologist.
Tristan speaks to Mark Watson of Hidden Heritage.
Today Tristan takes on the news in his usual rambling tones. The topics covered are from a number of different sources (listed below); with many modern discussions using history in hyperbolic ways to justify action and inaction, its time to step back and see how the past is used.
Recently a lead object was found in Israel, possibly suggesting very early metal work.
Hello and welcome to another "I can't get a guest speaker so I am just going to ramble on anyway" episode. Today's episode is a bit more knowledgable than usual since I have now actually worked out in a field and not just poured over a textbook. I also wanted to talk about the recent news story of the ancient "Eco-home" and why that may a problem name and finally I talk a little about how people react to you telling them you're an archaeologist, or at least Anarchaeologist

Paul Edward Montgomery
Today’s episode is with University of York PhD Paul Montgomery, public archaeologist
We sit down to talk public archaeology, Paul’s perspective on history and more importantly music and shows like Metalocalpse. Monogolian Throat singing rap? Metal bands based in history? Continuing into the history of Disco and why you avoid falling down Wikipedia holes. Paul also realises his love for big shiny outfits.
We chat about race and class in Nicaragua where Paul grew up, the colonial origins of words and the state of archaeology in Nicurgua.
Check out Paul’s blog below
Apologies for the technical difficulties that you will hear throughout this episode, I have tried my best to fix that.
I take the tough questions to Stephen about using videogames to help educate children and what the challenges and benefits are; Does Call of Duty belong in the classroom? Does Tetris have the answer?
Stephen believes in immersion and you will too by the end of this episode.

Hello Everyone and welcome back to the Anarchaeologist podcast! It's been a while but we are coming back swinging with an absolute belter of an episode. Today I am speaking to the wonderful Robert M Chapple - a man infamous (they say) because of a Crannog in Ireland and a 'recovering archaeologist'. Adding to this we bring up having a reputation in archaeology (undeserved or otherwise) and how to survive outside the world of archaeology.
This has a lot of accent in it.
Remember to follow me @Anarchaeologist and @ArchPodNet on Twitter for updates and you'll definitely want to follow @RMChapple too
Hello Everyone or alternatively helo pawb if you are Welsh!
Once again I am joined by Mr. Soup from ArchaeoSoup Productions bringing a somewhat respectable air to the chaotic show! We talk topical stories in archaeology, Nefertiti's Tomb and why that ties into press releases and sensationalism in the media. Next up we talk about how history is misread by society and Mr. soup and I get into a bit of a back and forth about the purpose of history.
We discuss the reaction to the recent Motherboard article by Andrew Reinhard and what that means for archaeology.
Are you a meta - processual archaeologist?
WARNING : Terrible jokes, really bad puns and a chaotic conversation
Hello Everyone - so I lost episode 22 - oops, sorry.
Instead I am producing an episode here and now and with many more detintely in the pipeline. Today's episode talks about my new job, EAA Glasgow 2015 conference and what I have coming up for you in the next couple of weeks. An important message I would like to share is that of how speaking online isn't something we should do lightly, in fact, we should actually be more ready to listen to others and what they have to say rather than making sure our voice is the loudest in the room 100% of the time. It can be doifficult to feel heard especially in the ocean of voices on the internet, but we should take this time we have to listen and engage - listen and Retweet. If you want to read the whole thing you can find a link here to the blog.
Finishing off the episode with a little segment called Ask An Archaeologist with questions from my Twitter feed! Thank you all for sending them in!
