Anarchaeologist Speaks: Used History and Lead Objects - Episode 28

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.

Working all day, Eco Homes and Palmayra - Anarchaeologist Speaks - Episode 27

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

Stephen Reid Of Immersive Minds - Episode 25

tephen Reid of Immersive minds takes us on a journey, from his time in call centres to his current business of using technology to educate. In particular, Stephen’s work on Minecraft recreations of historic buildings have taken the internet by storm with Penicuik House and Geocaching in Minecraft.

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.

Episode 24 : Robert "The M stands for Mischevious" Chapple

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

Soup and Sandwich Meal Deal : Episode 2 - Games, Egypt and Society

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?

Episode 23: EAA Glasgow, Social Media and Ask an Archaeologist

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!

Episode 21 : Tim Hunt, Biblical Vases and the Importance of Archaeology

Hello Everyone, sorry for the late release of this episode, I want to justify it with complaining about my life but I digress here is an episode of me rambling for an age. I would be in error if I didn't mention Tim Hunt and his recent comments (old news now) - relating to our own specific conversations in archaeology. Next up a story about a biblical vase and a name that appeared in the Bible. News about the Kennewick Man.  I finish the episode with a rant about the importance of Archaeology because it wouldn't be me if I didn't!

Episode 20: Gabe and Tristan Battle For the Truth

Hello and welcome back to a crowning example of what really happens when archaeologists talk at length. Gabe Moshenska makes a return to the show, bringing us up to date on his Oral Histories project but soon enough a wider conversation on the presentation of the Second World War and how history is used by various political factions to back up their own ideas. Furthermore we descend even deeper into the world of Political Correctness, the right wing and how archaeology can be part of rediscovering history.

Episode 18 : Archaeodeath : Discussing the Pestiferous

 

Today we go into the depths of death; to the bottom of the pit to discover the man behind the blog Archaeodeath. Today's guest is Proffessor Howard Williams of the University of Chester, England. Here we discuss the meaning of death in archaeology and the role of Mortuary Archaeology as a specialisation. Despite this morbid topic, we have a wonderful chat about comedy, humour and not being super serious all the time (in fact sometimes it pays to be funny). Professor Williams explains the story behind his recent blog post on studying cemeteries. 

We also talk about who can speak out and what it means to be offensive  as a Professor in a University or as a young career archaeologist.

I discuss how metal and archaeology can come together and what the best rap battle between archaeologists could be.

The Anarchaeologist Speaks - Episode 17

**WARNING CONTAINS ARCHAEOLOGICAL BLACK METAL**

HARK! The trowels no longer shuffle in the dirt and the test pits have been dug. This week's episode settles down with Tristan aka The Anarchaeologist, as he goes on a tirade about news stories almost a month old. Fear not, dear listener, despite lacking topicality, Tristan assures me that his tone is witty, relentless and slightly over the top. 

If you had ideas about ISIS or The Temple of the Monkey, prepare to be amazed at even more questions and pondering as well as some food for thought.

The Anarchaeologist will return to normal programming with the next episode, in the meantime I leave you in the capable hands and warm tones of Tristan Boyle

Episode 16 Electric Archaeology with Shawn Graham

Today's episode we enter the electric zone of archaeology with our guide Shawn Graham. Talking about his blog and how it has led through his identity as an academic starting off and how it got him the job he has now because of it.

We talk about Public archaeology and what it means and how we can deal with it.

 

And interestingly, how do archaeologists interact with each other?

 

Best summed up "There's no point in doing work for the audience of one"

Episode 15 : Shamanism in The UK

Sporting a headdress of red deer bones and antlers, Masters student of Archaelogy James Dilley brings a flavour of Shamanism to the Anarchaeologist Podcast. We discuss the reality of Shaman practises in the UK (which I can’t pronounce properly the entire episode), and what life was like for bronze age wizards. We also discuss modern pagan groups and what inspired James to enter the Spirit World, and talks us through many important finds of Shamanistic burial sites, which ultimately influenced his Shaman kit.

I ask whether it fits my Neanderthal frame.

 

We discuss modern pagan groups and James’ own attraction to Shamanism and what inspired him to enter the world of the spirits.

"Mick Aston sadly passed away on 24th June 2013, He featured in 19 out of 20 Series of the popular programme Time Team.

We think it would be really nice and fitting to pay #Respect to the late Mick Aston via doing a Special 'One-Off' DIG in memory of him at a location Mick would have loved!

We know More4 are to air old episodes of Time Team in tribute of Mick on July 13th 2013, But us Time Team Fans would like to see a Special 'One Last Dig' for Mick.

Thank You,

Lee Brady"
