Archaeology and beer well that’s a match you don’t see too often (sarcasm). This is actually a session on the archaeology of brewing, not archaeologists brewing, though it does involve that too. It was a pretty great session we video recorded from the CIfA conference, for your enjoyment. Session Abstract: We will be exploring the ongoing relationship between archaeology and brewing.
I’ve had reason lately to be collecting information regarding the sale of human remains online, in various places. One such is Instagram. Working with Instagram is not straightforward. One approach that I had been using was a package for R called ‘InstaR‘ by Pablo Barbera. It worked great, after some initial confusion on my part on how to get the damned thing to authenticate (which involves setting up an Instagram developer’s account, etc etc.).

And so its time to pass on a useful tip to those starting out on their PhD studies. This is the third approval I will have got (and I’m pretty sure to get it, its low risk ethics-wise), during my time here.
x i shall be across the plain when the sun was sinking but enough of the chain between my mother embraced me once before when she cut me short with a push I fed King Solomon’s Mines into Ben’s markov chain generator that he’s been using as part of his class. This is what came out. I like it.
I’ve been living in South Africa for the past 13 years. I did my high school, bachelors and post-graduate studies here. I’ve had a wonderful time during my stay in a country so full of beautiful scenery and archaeology, wrapped in the hearts of so many cultures. I’ve made some amazing friendships and memories. Now, it’s time for a new chapter in our life.
Just drafted an abstract for my Sound Heritage presentation: This presentation explores what computer games can teach us about emotional engagement in cultural heritage interpretation. Beginning with a model of emotional affect drawn from the work of Panksepp and Biven (Panksepp, 2012), Lazarro (Lazarro, 2009), Sylvester (Sylvester, 2013)and Hamari et al (Hamari et al., 2014), it reveals how music especially has become a versatile emotional trigger in game design.
Two videos from a session at the CIfA conference for the weekly video post.

Features are registered, finds are collected and analysed, a chronology of events is established, human interactions are reconstructed and reports are written.
