Blogging Archaeology- last one

“Field Notes”

http://curtinarchaeology.com/blog/

This blog is hosted by Curtin Archaeological Consulting, Inc., a CRM firm located in New York State. The archaeologists use this blog to document projects they are working on, even posting field photos of excavation and the recovered artifacts. Because of their location, the topics are largely focused on the heritage of the southern New York region, topics which are undoubtedly of interest to community members. What is great about this blog is that people who observe archaeology going on in their community can go online and have relatively immediate access to information about that project. The tone of the articles is accessible for the public and the information presented makes the CRM projects more transparent (for example, an article will say who the developers on a project are, what phase it is in, so forth). While I am sure there are some things that are not published, in general the blog seems to be a great way to involve the community in the archaeological process.
