    Why archaeology will be the next harbor for technology

    Why archaeology will be the next harbor for technology

    Paul and Chris talk about a Heritage Daily article that seems a bit starry-eyed about the role of archaeology in current and future technological innovations and use. The article linked below broadly discusses a number of technologies and we take a few of them and break them down.

    Why Digital Archaeology? A Case Study

    Why Digital Archaeology? A Case Study

    Archaeologists have been using digital technologies to augment traditional field archaeology for several decades (GPS and mapping mostly). However, as modern technologies continue to enter the archaeological space, most researchers are using these techniques almost as a second thought. The authors of this case study argue for development of a digital strategy that will allow researchers to plan and develop questions that are answered by a suite of techniques.

    Transcript
    So, transcripts are new from our recording software. It doesn’t get everything right and the transcript is the raw recording with no editing. But, it’s better than nothing and I’m glad we have them now! Let me know what you think in the comments. (get the files from the website directly)

    Hot Takes on a Cool Discovery -OR- We’re putting our foot in it

    Hot Takes on a Cool Discovery -OR- We’re putting our foot in it

    A recent paper discussing footprints found years ago in New Mexico is shaking up the archaeological community. The footprints were dated to between 21,000 and 23,000 years ago - problematic because concrete evidence for the earliest sites sits at around 14,000 years ago. There are older sites, but, the evidence isn't great. This new research, however, could change everything.
