ArchaeoTech 2017.jpg

We got four Chris's (what are the odds!), and a couple non-Chris's on this one! This panel breaks down some of the details of drones in archaeology we haven't covered before on this show. Dr. Sally Applin's research specifically focuses on the "sociability" of drones in human environments. We tackle the legal, ethical, and social hurdles to effective drone implementation and ultimately question if it's all worth it.
