Archaeology and Technology.jpg

Welcome to the ArchaeoTech Podcast. Today is February 26th, 2019, so put on your party hat because we're recording the 100th episode. This is Paul Zimmerman, your host for for this milestone, along with my co-host (the pod's usual host) Chris Webster.

This podcast is based on a paper (linked below) about reconstructing an ancient structure at Tiwanaku in Bolivia. This structure was incomplete and they had no idea what it was supposed to look like. But, through some high tech methods and good old fashioned elbow grease they figured it out.
