I’m excited to announce that I’ve just had a new article published for a website called Stone Age Man! The article is an introduction to archaeology titled, “Archaeology: The Science of Uncovering the past.”
This new direction may seem odd, given that I’ve been all about wildlife conservation for the past four years. In actuality, it makes perfect sense.
As many of you know, two years ago I went insane and joined an archaeological field school in Belize called the Programme for Belize Archaeological Project (PfBAP). I was hoping that enrolling in the school would put me in a position to begin crafting a master’s thesis related to jaguar conservation in that small, Central American country.
While that thesis didn’t work out – despite me spending three weeks after the field school learning about jaguar conservation in Belize – I’ve remained curious about archaeology ever since.
Now that I’m done with my degree, I’ve begun to explore archaeology in greater depth. I volunteered at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History‘s field digs this past summer, am now an official volunteer in their archaeology lab, and have been reading as much about the science as I can.
These efforts have culminated in my new article, which serves as a basic introduction to the science of archaeology.
Expect more articles from me about archaeology in the future, on Stone Age Man and potentially elsewhere.
