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.
