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.

Ed Jakaitis


In this episode, we are joined by Ed Jakaitis; Cultural Resources Program Manager at Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky.

Ed began his tenure as an archeologist while attending community college in the Chicago area. It was then when he had his first introduction to archeology. From there he went on to Northern Illinois University to pursue the discipline even further and make it his chosen profession.

Along the way, Ed has had the opportunity to conduct fieldwork at a variety of different places around the world. Including Belize to work at a late classic Mayan site, and to Sicily to work at a Hellenistic site. Now he works at the very expansion Mammoth Cave National Park.

Listen to his answers to our 15 questions, and get an interesting perspective from someone who operates in one of our great national parks.
