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.
