Announcement : Public Archaeology Twitter Conference 4 - 5th Sept 2019

This is a special announcement ahead of the Public Archaeology Twitter Conference (PATC4).

"We hold these conferences in order to continue our attempts to challenge the conference status quo in terms of communication, diversity and inclusivity. Conference attendance has many issues, such as funding and accessibility, so these formats can contribute information which can be used to make archaeology safer and more accessible within as well as outside the profession.

Conferences that cost over £400 to attend are no longer financially viable for most people. Conferences that charge large fees and discuss public and community archaeology are excluding the participants, communities and colleagues with whom we work who do not have access to travel and conference funds, those with caring responsibilities, those with disabilities, or simply those who do not have enough time to travel long distances. There needs to be an alternative."

The hashtag for the September 2019 event will be #PATC4.

On this episode Chris Webster interviews Sean Cox of East Carolina University regarding their exhibit in the Tech Room at the 50th Annual Society for Historical and Underwater Archaeology meeting in Fort Worth, TX. Cox and his team explored an underwater wreck, took a bunch of photos and data points, and created an interactive 3D rendering of the wreck that you can walk around and on. It was pretty cool and a great way to experience something that only a few have the ability to.

0047 - OAS (November 2016) - Pat O'Grady & Rimrock Draw

APN host, Christopher Sims, went to the November meeting of the Oregon Archaeological Society in Portland, Oregon to hear Dr. Pat O'Grady (University of Oregon) speak on his research at Rimrock Draw. 

The Rimrock Draw site in southeastern Oregon is changing what archaeologists know about the first people to live in Oregon. It presents some unique challenges and opportunities, and ongoing research has been made possible through public support from OAS.
