Check out my newest episode of Trowel Tales. Episode Summary: On this episode, we’re keeping things lighthearted. Listen to archaeologists’ favorite artifacts, archaeological sites, places, and experiences in the field and how hard it can be to choose just one. For a lot of archaeologists, it’s not just about the stuff. It boils down to the love of discovery and recording the past for future generations.
On today’s episode, we’re going to get into the nitty gritty of excavation. Learn about what kind of field schools archaeologists attended to learn how to use a trowel. Hear about the unique artifacts they uncovered. And, decide for yourself if excavating is a cool as it seems (i.e. it is!).
