“Where in the hell am I”?
This blog is written by John, who worked as a CRM archaeologist for several years and is now an archaeologist with Texas State Parks. The purpose of this blog is to give the public a better understanding of what field archaeology and CRM is all about, but there is also a lot on the blog that professional archaeologists will find useful. For example, if you aren’t sure where to get a taco or good BBQ while in Austin for this year’s SAA conference, John has you covered. His posts cover topics ranging from what he did at work today, to which community outreach and educational programs he is involved with. So while the article is not necessarily scholarly in tone, it bridges the gap between the public and the academic world in a way that makes CRM more transparent and accessible to the general public.
