Original talk date: Thursday, September 29, 2022


AIA Archaeology Hour with Krish Seetah: New Approaches to the Archaeology of Disease
By: ArchaeologyTV. Published: 09/22/2022

"New Approaches to the Archaeology of Disease: Climate, Imperialism, and Malaria in the Indian Ocean" Please note that this presentation includes images of human remains. From 1855 to 1859, the island of Mauritius, located near Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, produced nearly 10% of the world’s sugar. With a landmass smaller than the size of the state of Rhode Island, the transformations that resulted from this intensification in sugar cane production were dramatic. Krish will talk about a series of malaria epidemics that plagued the island from the 1850s onward and how archaeology can help contemporary studies of vector-borne disease. Webinar Date: September 20, 2022

Preserving Belize’s Archaeological Wonders: Visit (or Revisit) Belize Over Your Lunch Break!
By: ArchaeologyTV. Published: 07/19/2022

Live presentation recorded on July 14, 2022. Join AIA Director of Programs Dr. Ben Thomas for a virtual trip across Belize and its archaeological wonders. Discover (or rediscover for those of you who have traveled to Belize) the incredible cultural heritage of the country and be reminded why it is critically important for us to speak up for preserving the places that we love. Dr. Thomas will share the archaeological highlights of Belize and reflect on his many years of fieldwork in the country. The country of Belize recently requested that the U.S. renew the bilateral agreement that protects Belizean cultural resources from being illegally imported into the United States. After the trip across the country, the AIA will outline the simple steps you can take this month to speak out in support of preserving Belize’s cultural heritage.

Boats, the Oceans, and Archaeological Evidence for Precolumbian Voyages by Alice Kehoe
By: ArchaeologyTV. Published: 06/08/2022

Full title: Traveling Prehistoric Seas: Boats, the Oceans, and Archaeological Evidence for Precolumbian Voyages The idea that Columbus discovered an unknown New World in 1492 was popularized in the nineteenth century as part of U.S. “Manifest Destiny” propaganda for taking over the American continent. Indians were labeled “Savages” isolated from the rest of the world and incapable of great works. Similarities between Old World and American crafts are still conventionally said to be independent inventions, and long ocean voyages impossible. The Guinness Book of World Records shows that even a paddleboard has been sailed between American and Europe, twice. This lecture shows varieties of boats capable of crossing oceans; obvious evidence that people crossed ocean straits more than 100,000 years ago in the South Pacific; archaeological evidence of movements around the Pacific in the Terminal Glacial Period; and archaeological evidence of transpacific contacts between Southeast Asia and Mesoamerica during the medieval spice trade about 1200 C.E. Woodland ceramics in eastern North America are best explained by introduction across the North Atlantic from coastal Scandinavia, as hypothesized by Stuart Piggott. DNA analyses now confirm interpretations formerly dismissed as “impossible”. This lecture was originally given to the Milwaukee Society on Sunday, February 6, 2022.


Application of LiDAR Scanning for the Documentation of Ancient Cities and Regions by Chris Fisher
By: ArchaeologyTV. Published: 06/08/2022

The application of airborne LiDAR for the detection and documentation of archaeological sites has initiated a ‘paradigm shift’ for Mesoamerican archaeology. Dr. Fisher will discuss results from two archaeological projects in disparate areas of Mesoamerica that have utilized LiDAR to examine intra-site and extra-site patterning. The first, centered at the site of Angamuco in the Lake Pátzcuaro Basin, Michoacán, used LiDAR as a tool to examine the spatial patterning of individual units of architecture. The second used LiDAR to document the complete settlement pattern of an unexplored valley within the Mosquitia tropical wilderness of Honduras. This work was described by author Douglas Preston in the 2017, New York Time’s bestselling book Lost City of the Monkey Gods: A True Story. This lecture was originally given to the Milwaukee Society on Sunday, March 6, 2022.


Sardis: Recent Discoveries from the Bronze Age until the End of Antiquity by Nicholas Cahill
By: ArchaeologyTV. Published: 06/08/2022

The Archaeological Exploration of Sardis expedition has carried out large-scale, scientific excavations at the site in western Turkey since 1958. Over these 5+ decades, archaeologists have documented the emergence and development of Sardis, capitol of the Lydian Empire of the 7th and 6th centuries BCE, and of one of the great cities of the ancient world. Utilizing spectacular aerial imagery, Dr. Nicholas Cahill, Director of the Sardis Expedition since 2008, will discuss the geography, history and challenges of excavating such a large and complex site and will provide a backdrop for understanding recent discoveries and research. The speaker will address current archaeological questions including: Who were the Lydians that built Sardis as the capitol of their ancient kingdom? What does the early development of the city look like? What cultural transformations are evident when the native capitol becomes a Greek polis? What can the collapse of Sardis tell us about the “End of Antiquity” in the 7th c AD? On-going site conservation efforts will also be featured. This lecture was given to the Milwaukee Society on Sunday, November 14, 2021.


Archaeology Abridged: Preserving Underwater Maya Finds using 3D Technology with Heather McKillop
By: ArchaeologyTV. Published: 05/20/2022

Webinar Date: May 19, 2022 Waterlogged wooden building posts and artifacts, including the K’ak’ Naab’ canoe paddle, presented a conservation nightmare when removed from the water for study. If allowed to dry, the wood shrunk, cracked, and decayed, not good for study or preserving long-term for exhibit in the case of the canoe paddle. The solution was to create 3D digital replicas of waterlogged wood, with some objects professionally conserved and others curated in deep silt in the lagoon. In this talk McKillop will describe setting up the DIVA Lab (Digital Imaging and Visualization in Archaeology), 3D digital imaging research-quality replicas of the underwater material. She will also discuss 3D printed replicas for exhibits in Belize funded by an AIA Site Preservation Grant.

Strata: Portraits of Humanity, September 2022
By: The Archaeology Channel. Published: 09/15/2022

Season 8 Episode 12 Strata: Portraits of Humanity, September 2022 (A scientific and ethical commentary on the disposition of human remains exhumed from a construction site in Lyons, France) Emma Bouvard-Mor, an archaeo-anthropologist of Lyon, France, offers a commentary on the different possible destinations of the human remains she exhumes, based on sometimes conflicting scientific and ethical expectations. These remains are bones from a Revolutionary Period (late 1700s) church cemetery, which had been removed from their graves and placed in an ossuary pit during a previous phase of construction. Now they must be removed, and thus will become scientific data as well as traces of people who still demand respect.

Review of History Channel's COLOSSEUM: COMMODUS (Ep 7) | Tower of Bible Podcast
By: XKV8R — Robert R. Cargill, PhD. Published: 09/15/2022

In this podcast, Dr. Robert Cargill and Dr. Jordan Smith review episode 7 of HISTORY's limited documentary series COLOSSEUM, which focuses on COMMODUS—the emperor who fought as a gladiator. In addition to commenting on the episode's writing, research, directing, acting, editing, and overall production, the hosts discuss the son of the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius, whose reign became a turning point for Rome and the Colosseum. Commodus's narcissism and paranoia led to persistent conflicts with the senate and ultimately to his assassination and the official blotting out of his memory. The discussion ends with a tribute to the series narrator, Campbell Scott, and a reflection on the 1992 Cameron Crowe film "Singles" in which Scott stars, which (quite coincidentally) celebrates 30 years since its release this week.

We meet the legendary bestiarius, Carpophorus, who killed 20 animals in one bout. For more, visit Bible & Archaeology at http://www.uiowa.edu/bam.
