Mined Government House today for old field school reports. Stumbled on this typology of posthole bases. For those times when “post” just isn’t enough:)
Can you identify this projectile point? The closest we’ve come is a Turkey Tail from west Texas… though it would be a ways from home!
These are so cool! I’ve decided my new field goal is to find a turkey-tail point.
The best part is that turkey-tail points could be used as bullroarers (don’t try that at home). Credit to Robert Hall for figuring that out, though I don’t think the article is available online.
It’s not a telegram, not a phone call: it’s folks getting together and discussing and conversing about issues between the nations.
If I made myself a little logo with a trowel for my resumes, would that make me seem more attractive as a potential employee?
Any thoughts? (serious ones)
I’m trying to get my foot in the door this field season.
I work very carefully on my resumes, and the printed data contained within them is most important to me. Superficially, though, would a small, simple logo catch the eye or is that just junk?
Both! I might enjoy a nice logo, but really what matters is the resume and, sometimes most importantly, the cover letter.
It is in fact the discovery and creation of problems rather than any superior knowledge, technical skill, or craftsmanship that often sets the creative person apart.
A recent public opinion poll on Aboriginal issues revealed some disturbing, but not surprising results—at least for Aboriginal people: two thirds of those polled believe that Aboriginal peoples receive too much support from Canadian taxpayers; two thirds believe that Aboriginal peoples are treated well by the federal government (74% in Saskatchewan and Manitoba); and 60% nationally believe that most of the problems faced by native peoples are brought on by themselves (76% in Saskatchewan and Manitoba). IPOS Reid, the market research company that conducted the survey, should have done another poll, one that asked a simple question: Why do the majority of Canadians know so little about their own history? The recent poll demonstrates just how ignorant and uneducated many Canadians are when it comes to understanding Aboriginal peoples, and especially understanding the meaning of Aboriginal rights.
Zombie 140: Archaeologist
Wait…so this isn’t how you are supposed to excavate?
Where’s the zombie? All I see is a field tech doing the tongue test.
billionsofminds asked: Are clovis points fluted on both sides?
Usually, but not always.
Ah yes, when archaeology meets wine.
What’s wrong with this photo?
*cough* fluting *cough*
Right. I’m a little worried about the lack of critical commentary on Tumblr. Though that sounds ridiculous.
