Weekly Round Up for 11/22/13

This week we’re bring back the round up. Fortunately my MAC project is over, so I can safely get back to doing other things with my time. Like learning more about how to use ArcGIS…yay. So what has Archy been up to in her long absence?

Blogging

You may have seen it earlier, but I am participating in the Blogging Carnival over at Doug’s Archaeology. You can read my post here, and I encourage you to follow the link to Doug’s blog to read some of the other posts as well.

I’ve also added a new Founding  Mother to our Women in Archaeology series. Go check her out, she’s a snappy dresser!

And we take a look at more viking pseudoarchaeology in the next instalment of Where the Vikings Weren’t, this time we’re back in Canada.

Podcast

The CRM Podcast is still going strong. We had our first all woman show about a month ago, it was very well received, and the second show was equally enjoyed. In the most recent episode we’re discussing Graduate School Applications, and how to pick what you want to do with your life. You can check out all the episodes at the links, or subscribe on almost any of the podcast apps out there.

Also, I got permission to used the theme music I wanted for my own podcast, so look forward to that in the new year! (I still need a good name.)

Twitter

I’ve started a new thing on Twitter that seems to be popular, it an #ArchaeologyChat! For those who don’t know what that is, it’s like a chat room on twitter, only it’s public and you have to use the hashtag to make sure your comments get seen. It’s been really great so far, we’ve had two chats now, and I’ve learned how to archive them on Storify. If you’d like to read over the last two chats, just follow the links!

First ever #ArchaeologyChat!

#ArchaeologyChat for 11/20/2013

Reading

I haven’t been able to get much done here, but I’ve got some interesting articles in the cue. Hopefully I’ll  be able to get to those this next week and I’ll give you my take on them.

All you ever wanted to know at Lininations at Mound A.

So, there you go. I’ve been pretty busy with my MAC Poster and all, and I am working on another poster for the spring. Such is life I guess, now that I’m a graduate all I do is one project after another. Still, it beats being bored!

  1. Archy Fantasies, Oh! dear your English is shocking me, you are a graduate of the USA I can see. If you had been from Europe or even Scandinavia your English would not be accepted.
    to quote YOU:-
    Nov.22- 2013 – “This week we’re bring back the round up”.
    “Beats being board”!!! (My g-d!)
    You should never be bored because you have years of English to learn.
    I just could not read any more of this blatant, happy ‘stuff’, No wonder you all have to go to College and then some, to get what we in Europe get in grade school . . . USA was minus 20 other countries in education this year.
