We’re gonna do some timetravel today as this video was filmed onsite during the dig a few weeks ago. I asked some students how they were finding the dig. We talked about how it matched their expectations, how it compared to other digs and some other stuff. If you would like an insight into what it’s like to work on a dig like this then this is a good place to start!
Let me know if you have any questions for our students I will be sure to pass them and a big thank you goes to the people who helped me make this video! Thank you for letting me take you into the woods for an ‘interview’ and trust that I wasn’t going to murder you (I didn’t).
I asked some of you guys on Instagram what questions you have for an Archaeology student and here are your answers! I hope you enjoy the video and if you have any other questions then please let me know. If I get enough I might make a part two. During the video I am playing with the Tiger ‘excavation kit’ which lets you pretend to excavate a dinosaur (yes I address archaeology vs paleontology in the video). It was fun at first but then I got bored and my hand started to bleed so I gave up with the small tools you get and used a hammer instead. The small one was fun though! This is in no way connected to Tiger I just thought it was a nice idea and if you want to buy one you can get it at your local ‘Flying Tiger Copenhagen’ shop.
