Writing about archaeology shares similarities with other scientific writing but it also can show it's own style. Archaeologists have to be able to not only tell other scientists about their research, but, have to be able to convey that to the public in a number of ways. On this episode we talk about the different places you'll find archaeological writing, what it takes to create it, and how to find the original sources of articles you're reading.
