We Are The Decay - Episode 46

Anarch-1 2017.jpg

Launching what he calls “The Archaeologist’s Manifesto” Tristan is back again (after another hiatus) and will be bringing a propaganda fuelled monthly podcast to your ears. Todays episode focuses on Decay and what that means in modern society – looking at how histories are treated and whether forgetting a history is as bad as damaging it for other ideological reasons.

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.

HARK THY HANDS ARE THOSE OF ICONOCLASTS! - Episode 36

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.

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.

He's not Dead, he was only busy - Anarchaeologist - Episode 34

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.

QUB a Dub Dub 2 - David Bell and Jill Almond

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.

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 19: Zenobie Wan Has Taught me Well

Todays episode transcends the atlantic ocean to bring the wonderful Zenobie Garrett, Archaeologist living in New York but originally from Illinoise. We talk Mediveal archaeology and how it isn’t what you normally expect and how public archaeology is the most important thing we can engage in. I comment on the culture of archaeologists and Zenobie drops a few puns. We talk about what archaeology is and why we were both drawn to it.

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.

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 14: Experimental Vs Experiential

Today I sit down with the "Saturday Night Shaman" and owner of Ancient Crafts UK to shed light on the great debate of experimental Vs. experiential archaeology.

 

We talk through what goes into making stone axes and I quickly discover how much James likes knapping.

James recalls his time on history tv shows such as Time Team and others and explains that link to experiential archaeology.

We talk about what time team is and our fond memories of it, James reveals his special connections to Time Team, and we look at the future of what an archaeological show can be like.

 

Paul gives us an insight into the world of broadcasting and what hurdles future shows may face; so if you are interested this episode is for you!

 

 

We also talk about the Time Team Campaign on Change.org run by time team fans,

 

"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"

Episode 9 : Oral Histories - The Archaeologists Who Built London

In todays episode I speak to the wonderful Gabe Moshenska as he describes his latest project, the Archaeologists who built London. This is no ordinary project, this is an oral history of the archaeologists who dug in London after the bombing of the second world war and uncovered the rich history of the capital city. You will find a link below to the project page which is being crowdsourced via Micropasts and the video for the project features Gabe's very own artistic talent. We also manage to talk about archaeology in the public sphere, (unfortunately Mr. Moshenska has a soft spot for Indiana Jones) and why we should have more women in archaeological media.
