Today Chris and Paul discuss an article from the May 2018 issue of Advances in Archaeological Practice, a journal from the Society for American Archaeology. It's an article that summarizes the rest of this special journal issue that is all about the reuse of archived data. It's a real issue in archaeology and we dive in on this episode.
Today we talk about digital preservation in archaeology and history. Is digital preservation really preservation? Is it possible to preserve something 100% digitally? Send us your answers and thoughts to these questions.
Posters at conferences haven't changed much over the last few decades...or ever, really. The poster is designed so the researcher can convey information to passersby and answer any questions they may have. That's a pretty easy thing to do in very different ways. On today's show Paul and Chris discuss various ways conferences can spice up the poster room and offer different types of interaction.
In April 2018 Chris Webster attended the Society for American Archaeology Meetings in Washington, D.C. Today's episode contains segments recorded in the poster room and the exhibit hall.
