After months and possibly years of talking about doing a podcast and a blog here we are, ready to launch. This is the first post of the Illinois State Archaeologist blog and we are pleased to feature our first podcast. We sat down with Dr. Thomas E. Emerson (the Illinois State Archaeologist and Director of the Illinois State Archaeological Survey) and talked about what exactly does the State Archaeologist do and some personal background about his education, career in archaeology, and everything in between. Link to the podcast is below along with Dr. Emerson's career timeline.
To ask Dr. Emerson a question please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to answer it on the podcast!
