Audio/Video Possibilities

Gearing up for any field session can be a time consuming task. Since we are in the office today because of the rain (hope none of our local readers got hit by the tornadoes yesterday!), we are putting together a list of all things we need to accomplish before June gets here. And June will be here before we know it!

Besides the usual things we would need and like to have, one of the things we would like to see and use is the use of audio video resources for our project. We always have lots of still photography, but I think it's time we added video to our work. April brought this up a while back but I wanted to talk about it again since we are getting so close to June.

If anyone has any experience in this department and would like to volunteer their time and equipment to videotape work being done on site, we would like to hear from you.

Some of the things I would like to see done are video of all aspects of the work: digging, screening, washing, etc. And also maybe some interviews with staff and volunteers. I think it would be nice to hear from the "mouths of the crew" what they think of the project, archaeology itself, or even just an introduction about themselves.

Contact us via email or through the blog here if you are interested in helping with this venture!
