I’m using the new alternative version to Skype on Blog Talk Radio, let me know what you think.
Join host Sarah Uthoff and Lynn M. Alex, recently retired Director of Education and Outreach for the State Archaeologist of Iowa as she shares with us what happens on an archaeological dig and how you can be involved. Alex has conducted research in the Midwest and Plains for 35 years. Her second book entitled Iowa’s Archaeological Past, was published by the University of Iowa Press, 2000. Her particular interests include the late prehistoric cultures of the Plains and Midwest, archaeological manifestations of culture contact, fish bone analysis, and public education in archaeology.
