Episode Info:

On this fun-filled episode, Alex Fitzpatrick comes on the show to speak about her expertise in zooarchaeology. She works on The Covesea Caves Project, an archaeological investigation of Bronze Age life on the shore of Northeast Scotland. By examining animal bones, Alex uncovers information about prehistoric diets, food processing techniques, ritual and mortuary life, and ancient cosmologies. We also talk about her early inspirations for entering the field, the importance of museum repatriation and decolonizing our disciplines, and the intersection of anarchy and archaeology.

You can find more information in the show notes under the episode on our website.
