ArchWorld I : Virtualistation For the Masses - Episode 49

Bring yourself online..... 

The HBO drama Westworld has entered its second season, dealing with a robot revolt and what it means to be Artificial Intelligence and by extension, human. All against a backdrop of America's favourite cultural setting, the Wild West. Tristan uses Westworld to introduce his multi episode series on virtual archaeology and the importance of thinking about representation of archaeology; do we want a fun and engaging history that allows people to explore or should we let people "peek behind the curtain" in order to be more honest.

Supremacist Cheeseboard - Episode 48

Content Warning - Racism, Far Right Wing

Cheddar Man was only meant to be one data point within a wider data-set about prehistoric migrations into Britain. Instead the representation of Cheddar Man with dark skin sent the right wing blog-o-sphere into a media furore claiming conspiracy and bad science. And although its fun to laugh at white supremacists who make such a huge point of having direct lineage have to come to terms with a "black ancestor" - is this really the conversation we need to have? Surely there must be more to talk about when it comes to race, genetics and the representation of the past.

End of Anarchaeologist - Episode 45

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.

You Can Do it - Episode 43 - Anarchaeologist

Today’s episode trials a new format of the Anarchaeologist podcast, now on a monthly release schedule (adhering to anything wouldn't be very anarchistic would it?).  Tristan talks about getting involved with projects and taking part in the world, and more importantly why everyone should feel at least they have some chance to do something worthwhile. A special recording is provided by Dr. Chloe Duckworth a.k.a. ArchaeoDuck. And for the first time on the network we hear from the 5YR Leader and his opinions on archaeology.

Science, Certification and Chris Webster - Episode 37

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.

Palmyra Must Fall - Episode 35

"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.

Enabled Archaeology – Theresa O’Mahony – Episode 33

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.
