Archaeology is primarily a visual, social and cultural subject; in these interviews archaeologists discuss their lives in archaeology and their particular fields of interest. The interviews convey the excitement felt by teaching staff and students from the School of Archaeology at the University of Oxford as they reflect upon the multifaceted nature of the study of archaeology today.

A useless stub
2 stars for good audio quality. While the interviews offered some good insights, they were quite insufficient as a full podcast. Given Oxford’s reputation in archaeology, they would have done well in producing a real podcast, and interspersed these interviews between the main episodes. The general public does not know these interviewees. First give them knowledge about archaeology in the form of lectures. That would make them more excited about the insights that individual archaeologists have to offer.
