We often hear of companies in the field of CRM Archaeology skimping on things like ice and water in for field crews. Should these be billable, line-item expenses, or just the cost of doing business like the light bill at the office? Also, where is that line between what the company should provide and what employees should provide?
Sonia and Chris start the episode by discussing something we saw on Facebook - which is something no one should do! Anyway, should archaeologists get per diem on the weekends on long term projects? We have our opinions. We spend the rest of the episode talking about the rough fire season in the western U.S. and how to deal with smoke and fire's effects on archaeology.
