It's hard to believe that it has been two years since we started this podcast! We hope you enjoy our reminiscing over our favorite episodes and our hopes for the podcast in the future.
On this episode, the hosts return to one of their favorite topics - the amazing women who have helped make archaeology the field it is. We'll talk about some of our personal heroes, women who definitely don't get enough credit, and how archaeological drawing is super hard and becoming somewhat of a lost art.
Today the panel discusses their essential field gear, How to Go in the field, what to do about Flo, and basic first-aid training and essentials.
