Alternative Lodging - CRMArch 168

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 - CRMArch 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 - CRMArch 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 - CRMArch 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?

Determining Eligibility - CRMArch 163

CRM Archaeology.jpeg

Using criteria from the National Park Service and other sources archaeologists are tasked to determine an archaeological resource's eligibility for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. This isn't so easy sometimes and we have criteria and integrity considerations to look at. This episode is a discussion of that process and the issues that come up when trying to do it.

Career Monitors and Mental Health - CRMArch 162

CRM Archaeology.jpeg

In some areas of the country archaeologists are monitoring for construction projects. That’s not unique. What is unique is that some of these archaeologists are monitoring for years at a time and they’re losing their skills. We talk about that, and, mental health issues in contract archaeology.

The Society for Historical Archaeology conference was held in St. Charles, Missouri this year (2019) and despite the 15 inches of snow, the government shutdown, and a fire in the terminal at St. Louis International, the conference went pretty well! Bill White and Chris Webster sit down with two women that started a Facebook group to be a safe place for people that are victims of the #metoo phenomenon and the talk to each other about other things they saw at the conference.
