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.

Some of which include the Carson Mounds Archaeological Project (CMAP) in the Lower Mississippi. As well as the Resilience in the Ancient Gulf South (RAGS) in the Mississippi River Delta.
