Hello and Welcome back for Episode 27 of The Struggling Archaeologist’s Guide to Getting Dirty “Ranger Danger!”
It’s the end of field season, so it’s time to discuss field work do’s and don’ts and then get safety conscious with a talk about the dangers of field archaeology. I had a fun time discussing this topic with some of my archaeology internet friend-type people, who contributed some of their horror stories from the field. It’s hard out there for an arch sometimes, but don’t let that scare you, it’s still an exciting and rewarding career that will keep you on your toes no matter where you’re working!

In this episode we explore two difference phases of early exploration and settlement in North America. First, the Vikings, because Vikings don’t need an explanation they’re Vikings. Second, a recent discovery in Pensacola has revealed the location of an early Spanish settlement that has brought Spanish colonialism back into the spotlight. So sit back and enjoy, I promise I only mention Columbus once, the scoundrel!

Also, if you’re wondering if I have heard the awesome news about yet another potential Viking settlement Discovery in Canada, this one by space archaeologist Sarah Parcak- yes I have! I read about it just as the podcast was going to press. You can read about it here, and I may actually write a blog post about it shortly. Just more compelling evidence for in early Norse presence in North America!
