There are other things you can record on a site besides artifacts and features. There's other visual ways to record, including photogrammetry, 360 videos, and imagery for augmented and virtual reality. You can also record sounds, scents, and even taste. Not sure what that would do for you, but, it's certainly an option.

Possibly produced in the Frankish part of Europe, these swords have long been a mystery. Some have agreed that they represent a new technology of crucible steel. However, there are examples of them found that have been pattern-welded, a method which usually indicates a different form of metal production.

The Pazyryk culture is thought to have been a purely nomadic culture of the Iron Age since it is only identified through burials and associated artefacts. No settlements have been linked to it. These burials are found in the Altay Mountains in Kazakhstan, Mongolia, and Russia, and were placed in long barrows similar to the tomb mounds of the Scythian culture in modern-day Ukraine.

Ethnography, Videography, and Public Anthropology - Heritage Voices 13

Heritage Voices-1 2017.jpg

On today’s episode, Jessica interviews Dr. Sean Gantt, Acting Director of Education for Crow Canyon Archaeological Center. He talks about his vision for education at Crow Canyon, the value of public anthropology, and what drew him to this type of work. Sean also talks about his work as a graduate student working for the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians. There he helped with the development of an interpretation plan for the Nanih Waiya cultural landscape, the Choctaw Mother Mound, which was transferred to the tribe from a state park. From there we discuss videography and ethnography, including the importance of community based and reciprocal methods. Finally we close out by talking about specific ways that anthropology can improve as a discipline, including the role of conferences, and specific actions individual anthropologists can take to make anthropology a safer space for indigenous people.
