Episode 25 “P’cola Pride”


Subscribe to my feed! Hey everybody! I’m back for the 25th episode of the Struggling Archaeologist’s Guide to Getting Dirty, “P’cola Pride.” In this episode we explore two difference phases of early exploration and settlement in North America. First, the Vikings, because Vikings don’t need an explanation they’re Vikings. Second, a recent discovery in Pensacola has revealed the location of an early Spanish settlement that has brought Spanish colonialism back into the spotlight. So sit back and enjoy, I promise I only mention Columbus once, the scoundrel! If you’d like to check out more about the topics covered in this episode, here are some links for you to peruse.

  • Viking Outpost Discovery news
  • The Luna Colony discovery
Also, if you’re wondering if I have heard the awesome news about yet another potential Viking settlement Discovery in Canada, this one by space archaeologist Sarah Parcak- yes I have! I read about it just as the podcast was going to press. You can read about it here, and I may actually write a blog post about it shortly. Just more compelling evidence for in early Norse presence in North America! Enjoy the show friends. Remember you can also check out my show and many other great archaeology podcasts at the Archaeology Podcast Network McNiven Out!
