15 Questions With An Archeologist

Hello and welcome to 15 Questions with an Archeologist! 

This podcast is an interview show that seeks to ask as many archeologists as possible the same 15 questions. These questions are designed to cover the areas in which archeologists are most often queried. They are also designed to provoke thought and commentary on our profession.

Dr. Bill Schindler


In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Bill Schindler; Associate Professor of Anthropology and Archeology at Washington College and the Founder and Director of the Eastern Shore Food Lab.

Dr. Schindler received both his Master's degree and Ph.D. at Temple University. With much of his studies being centered around primitive technologies and various aspects of prehistoric food acquisition, storage, and consumption. He believes that gaining a better understanding of prehistoric life could help us address some of the issues that we face today. And that the lessons learned can be implemented into the diets of modern humans.

His studies have taken him all around the world to interact with different cultures and learn about their traditional foodways. He’s also been featured as a host for National Geographic’s television series The Great Human Race. Now, he seeks to take what he’s learned and share it with his students at Washington College. As well as with others through in-person workshops and virtual on-demand courses as a part of his brand, Eat Like A Human.

Listen to his answers to our 15 questions, and get an interesting perspective from someone who has a particular specialty that hasn't been featured yet on the podcast.
