Can chat bots help outreach and interact with the public or are they just one more distraction? We talk about chat bots in the context of a recent article from the Society for American Archaeology’s Advances in Archaeological Practice on this episode.

Disaster Preparedness for Archaeology Sites - Ep 93

Archaeology and Technology.jpg

Disaster preparedness takes many forms - depending on who you are and what you do. It's also important for archaeology sites. Creating relationships with major and local agencies and locating archaeology sites in jeopardy is paramount to preserving history. When disaster strikes we should be ready to respond or have recorded as much as possible already.

On today's show we talk about an article in the November 2018 issue of the SAA's Advances in Archaeological Practice that tackles these issues.
