I think the title explains what I love. Archaeology and music are my greatest passions in life, but I lean toward archaeology more. No, I don't dodge large boulders to get to work or dig up dinosaur bones. I'm no Indiana Jones or Lara Croft, but I like to think I have an exciting life. I'm just a 28 year-old grad student from California in-between universities, digging for various cultural resource management companies. You want to know what a real, modern archaeologist does? Feel free to ask! Follow my posts on the awesomeness and whimsy that is archaeology. With a little music, band geekiness, and my personal life mixed in.
do you want to know something?? I always wondered what the hell kind of hairstyle the Ancient Egyptians were trying to portray with depictions like these
until I did my hair this morning and
you can take the noses off our statues but until you find a way to take Egypt out of Africa we’re still going to find ourselves
piratenobeard looking for a photo project for this semester gave me an interesting idea a possible master thesis topic. Researching the ghost towns in Santa Clara County and in the Santa Cruz Mountains. I grew up in a town that almost went the way of New Almaden and Lexington, which merged with its growing neighbors. Campbell residents decided to take action in the 1960’s by building up the downtown, encouraging new businesses to move in, and refusing San Jose’s offer to take over the local government. Or at least this is what my parents told me. I think it would be interesting to compare my hometown to the towns that busted.
Just found out my former college marching band is learning “Happy” for the best fieldshow. Hell just froze over…
