In this weeks episode Lawrence and Derek are joined in virtual space by Dr Anna Rohnbogner​. The team discuss their careers under lock-down, pandemics and celebrity chefs. The episode also features a disease themed Monutrumps and some recommendations for heritage themed virtual resources.

This week’s episode is a throwback to when Derek and Lawrence were invited to attend the Short Sounds Film Festival. The trip puts them in a reflective mood as to the role of sound in Archaeology, perhaps an overlooked sense in what is very much a vision led profession. We hope you enjoy this short episode and spoiler alert, we have another new game jingle!

 

This podcast was recorded out and about in cafes and reception areas. Therefore, any music heard in the background is there through accidental inclusion.
