What archaeologists do

This month I’m guest blogging for the one-of-a-kind Savage Minds anthropology blog, so rather than post to my own webpages, I’ll link you directly to my contributions on SM’s site. I have a line-up of posts planned – most written in collaboration with others – and the first has just gone live. Here you’ll find preliminary thoughts on the subject of ‘what archaeologists do’, which provide a preamble to a series of co-authored posts by myself and Colleen Morgan.

Colleen and I are experimenting with methods for excavating media objects, and over the next few weeks we’ll be documenting our progress live for your critique. I do appreciate you taking the time to read this work and provide your constructive feedback. Blogging for Savage Minds is a real honour for me, but it comes with a weight of responsibility that I find daunting. I can see the thousands of hits the site receives per day, and the often intense dialogue that accompanies each post. Your support and thoughtful commentary would be much welcomed & it would be especially nice to see other archaeologists and heritage specialists contributing to the conversations on SM.

Thank you for reading & following along in our efforts at testing out an archaeological media archaeology:
