Hello and Welcome back for Episode 27 of The Struggling Archaeologist’s Guide to Getting Dirty “Ranger Danger!”
It’s the end of field season, so it’s time to discuss field work do’s and don’ts and then get safety conscious with a talk about the dangers of field archaeology. I had a fun time discussing this topic with some of my archaeology internet friend-type people, who contributed some of their horror stories from the field. It’s hard out there for an arch sometimes, but don’t let that scare you, it’s still an exciting and rewarding career that will keep you on your toes no matter where you’re working!
I was so jazzed about this topic that I created a little infographic for you to demonstrate what I’m talking about and present some of the info from the pod in a more streamlined manner. Here it is, and yes, that is me in the purple shirt and camo hat! It’s hard finding royalty free pictures of archaeologists in proper field gear, so I had to use myself as the model. I think I really make the whole infographic
I also threw in a shorty news piece about glacier archaeology because COOLNESS.
Here are links to things I mention in the podcast:
- Fieldwork Opportunities
- Women in Archaeology Episode 8 – What’s in Your Pack
- Health and Safety Information for Archaeologists
- Archaeology Trowels and Other Gear
- Glacier Archaeology Program
So that’s it for the show folks. Hope you liked it and feel a little bit more confident heading out into the wide world to do your thing. Remember to check out this and other great archaeology podcasts on the Archaeology Podcast Network. And as always, contact me at:
