Description All too often we talk about fake news and alternative facts as if they are new concepts. In reality history itself is constructed, and thus constrained by its authors, we have as a society taken this as truth and unfortunately there is more to history that just the past.

2. I Agree with Graham Hancock!? -Modern Myth Moment - I
download (audio/mpeg, 0.00Mb)

Description:

Ok, before you type your strongly worded tweet or you decide to #cancel me please give me a moment to explain. As has been highlighted recently, archaeology has a problem with impact with getting the information out there. Perhaps there’s nothing wrong with the food, its just the service isn’t what you want.

With his new book released graham hancock appeared on the Joe Rogan show and obviously talked at length about his book, he made some salient points and importantly he tied himself to those ideas and that’s where I think we can learn something about outreach.

4. Episode 1 : The Modern Myth of Brexit with Kenny Brophy
download (audio/mpeg, 0.00Mb)

Description:

Brexit, it's a word we hear all too often, no doubt we are fatigued by it. But in the cusp of its realization perhaps we should look how we got here. What helped create the narrative and  what information was drawn upon in order to make it seem that leaving the EU was the decision to vote for, at least for three majority of people.


I speak to Kenny Brophy from the University of Glasgow about his paper Brexit And Prehistory about the ways in which narratives were created and how people use symbols of the past to create their own narratives, and in some cases their own cairns.

5. ArchWorld I : Virtualistation For the Masses - Episode 49
download (audio/mpeg, 0.00Mb)

Description:

Bring yourself online..... 

The HBO drama Westworld has entered its second season, dealing with a robot revolt and what it means to be Artificial Intelligence and by extension, human. All against a backdrop of America's favourite cultural setting, the Wild West. Tristan uses Westworld to introduce his multi episode series on virtual archaeology and the importance of thinking about representation of archaeology; do we want a fun and engaging history that allows people to explore or should we let people "peek behind the curtain" in order to be more honest.

6. Supremacist Cheeseboard - Episode 48
download (audio/mpeg, 0.00Mb)

Description:

Content Warning - Racism, Far Right Wing

Cheddar Man was only meant to be one data point within a wider data-set about prehistoric migrations into Britain. Instead the representation of Cheddar Man with dark skin sent the right wing blog-o-sphere into a media furore claiming conspiracy and bad science. And although its fun to laugh at white supremacists who make such a huge point of having direct lineage have to come to terms with a "black ancestor" - is this really the conversation we need to have? Surely there must be more to talk about when it comes to race, genetics and the representation of the past.

Joining together in an all too rare occurrence, Tristan and Chris tackle the use of science in CRM archaeology. Since both podcasters arrived to archaeology from science based backgrounds, it was important to establish how that may have influenced how Chris views his field projects and how this became an inspiration for the Professional Certification for Scientists, a new learning website dedicated to bringing knowledge and credibility to those who work in the field or in the lab.

20. Palmyra Must Fall - Episode 35
download (audio/mpeg, 0.00Mb)

Description:

"The Echoes of the Past speak louder than any voice I hear right now" - Farewell Mona Lisa, The Dillinger Escape Plan

Words that have much meaning in today's iconophilic traditionalist society where the comical giants of politics saunter around proclaiming that simplybuilding 3D scanned monuments will somehow undo the damage done. Well don't hold out for any sympathies, because what the Palmyra reconstruction shows is that monumental heritage is more important than people.

If there are unjustices and debate in the public sphere concerning the past then let us as archaeologists not shy away, let us challenge the status quo, let's bring humanity back into the centre of archaeology.

Description:

Hello Everyone and welcome back to the Anarchaeologist podcast! It's been a while but we are coming back swinging with an absolute belter of an episode. Today I am speaking to the wonderful Robert M Chapple - a man infamous (they say) because of a Crannog in Ireland and a 'recovering archaeologist'. Adding to this we bring up having a reputation in archaeology (undeserved or otherwise) and how to survive outside the world of archaeology. 

This has a lot of accent in it.

Description:

Hello Everyone or alternatively helo pawb if you are Welsh!

 

Once again I am joined by Mr. Soup from ArchaeoSoup Productions bringing a somewhat respectable air to the chaotic show! We talk topical stories in archaeology, Nefertiti's Tomb and why that ties into press releases and sensationalism in the media. Next up we talk about how history is misread by society and Mr. soup and I get into a bit of a back and forth about the purpose of history.

We discuss the reaction to the recent Motherboard article by Andrew Reinhard and what that means for archaeology.

Are you a meta - processual archaeologist?

 

WARNING : Terrible jokes, really bad puns and a chaotic conversation



33. Episode 23: EAA Glasgow, Social Media and Ask an Archaeologist
download (audio/mpeg, 0.00Mb)

Description:

Hello Everyone - so I lost episode 22 - oops, sorry.

 

Instead I am producing an episode here and now and with many more detintely in the pipeline. Today's episode talks about my new job, EAA Glasgow 2015 conference and what I have coming up for you in the next couple of weeks. An important message I would like to share is that of how speaking online isn't something we should do lightly, in fact, we should actually be more ready to listen to others and what they have to say rather than making sure our voice is the loudest in the room 100% of the time. It can be doifficult to feel heard especially in the ocean of voices on the internet, but we should take this time we have to listen and engage - listen and Retweet. If you want to read the whole thing you can find a link here to the blog.

Finishing off the episode with a little segment called Ask An Archaeologist with questions from my Twitter feed! Thank you all for sending them in!
