Dr. Bill White, long-time host of this show, talks to us about historical archaeology. What is historical archaeology? When does it start in the United States? When does it end? What are some of the biggest questions in historic archaeology? Also, what's going historic in 2019 as a result of the 50-year-rule. These questions and more on the 152nd running of the CRM Archaeology Podcast.
The 2018 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology took place in New Orleans at the beginning of January. Bill White was there and he brings on two coleagues, Dr. Ayana Flewellen and Dr. Justin Dunnavant. They talk about their takeaways from the conference. Bill, Ayana, and Justin also talk about their work in St. Croix over the winter and about working in an area deeply affected by hurricanes and a lack of people to do preservation work. However, they mention that people on the island are working in their own communities to preserve there history.
