New video on Archaeology Channel:
Friends and colleagues: News about archaeological discoveries and
indigenous cultures plays an increasing role in media around the
world today. A new made-for-TV news program that caught our eye is
Anthropology Field Notes 1, the latest video feature on our nonprofit
streaming-media Web site, The Archaeology Channel

Featuring interviews with today's news-makers, host Faith Haney of
Central Washington University explores cultural anthropology and
archaeology. In this first episode of the series, Faith visits with
Trent de Boer, Washington Department of Transportation archaeologist
and publisher of the e-zine, Shovel Bum. Then she examines artifacts
from New Guinea, Oceania and India in the CWU Anthropology Museum
with former collections manager Martha Duskin Smith and University of
South Carolina anthropologist Karl Heider, ethnographer of New Guinea
indigenous groups.
