We Want to Hear from YOU!

Hey Indy fans!  Firstly, we’d like to extend a big thank you to all those who tune in on Wednesdays – working on this radio show is always a fun and rewarding experience, and we enjoy generating topics that we feel will contribute to discussions by the wider archaeological community.

And now it’s our turn to listen – what are some archaeological topics that YOU would like to hear about?  Are there any questions about archaeology that you would like to be addressed?  Please leave your thoughts in the comments section below!

  1. I don’t know if you’ve already covered this topic in an older show (I’ll have to check the archives) but I’d like to hear your thoughts on how archaeology is portrayed in the media and popular culture. Do you think films like Indiana Jones and TV shows like American Digger glorify treasure hunting and the looting of archaeological sites? Are they harming the image of archaeology as a serious academic discipline or are they actually attracting people to the discipline and raising awareness about the importance of studying the past?

    • That’s a great topic that we did get to touch on during our recent episode “Diggers and Relic Hunters: Popularizing Archaeology,” which was more about how to make archaeology a relevant subject in the public eye. But I think it would be a good idea to do another episode devoted to archaeology in the media specifically!
