Alternative Lodging - Ep168

CRM Archaeology.jpeg

From tents to hotel rooms CRM Archaeologists have seen it all when it comes to lodging. We sleep in our cars, double up in rented houses, and try to rack up those hotel points when we can. For the last few years, though, a new player had been shaking things up. With AirBnB anyone can rent out some or all of their residence and for archaeologists working on small town with few lodging options, this can be a real game changer for quality of life. On today's show we talk about the AirBnB trend and what it means for archaeology.

Managing Billable Expenses and Safety - Ep 167

CRM Archaeology.jpeg

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?

Trapped by Security - Ep 166

CRM Archaeology.jpeg

Many of us have been, or are at, a job that just wasn't the right fit. Why did we stay? Why didn't we just leave and get another job? The answer is usually that we were trapped by security. The words "trapped" and "security", however, have different meanings to different people. We talk about all that on this week's episode.

Preservation vs Conservation and Cities of the Future - Ep 165

CRM Archaeology.jpeg

On today’s show we talk about preservation and conservation in the context of cities of the future. Where are all the old buildings in the architectural drawings and artist’s conceptions of the future? Where’s the old post office, hotel, or city building? Even in science fiction the cities of the future are ultra modern with no ties to the past. Is that OK? Or, should we be thinking about how our past and present tie into our future?
