Why is Professor Kinkella Blogging about Archaeology Anyway?
I have started this blog for two reasons: Reason one, to answer any archaeology-related questions from my students and the general public. Reason two, to give you a feel for what it’s like to experience the world of archaeology firsthand, by posting stories from my past and present as a Maya archaeologist, underwater archaeologist, local California archaeologist, and college professor. While telling my stories, I will make sure to retain a simple enjoyment in archaeology, to show you that archaeology can be engaging, edgy, funny, and flamboyant without aliens or other high-concept nonsense. I promise that my posts will be simple, straightforward, jargon-free and intrinsically interesting.
Welcome, and don’t be shy – any archaeology-related question is fair game!
