Writing Series

Not sure where to start? Luckily, I have a couple of recurring writing series on this blog if you’re just skimming through – with lots on zooarchaeology, pop culture archaeology, and just plain ol’ archaeology, hopefully you find something you’re into!

  • Comparative Anatomy Guides – Posts dedicated to looking at various parts of the skeleton across species – possibly handy for those just learning about zooarchaeology.
  • PhD Life – From posts on the day-to-day life of a zooarchaeologist to tips on surviving your PhD, this series has you covered.
  • Keeper of the Archives – A look at the universe of Star Wars and how archaeology is utilised throughout the canonical and non-canonical works.
  • Studies in Skyrim – Using elements from the video game Skyrim, I take a look at some of the real world counterparts that inspired the material culture of the game.
  • Fallout Finds – A look at the post-apocalyptic archaeology of the video game series Fallout and what it may tell us about the future of archaeology.
  • Theorising Thedas – Using the Dragon Age franchise of video games, I look at how archaeological research has inspired aspects of the game’s lore, as well as discuss the role of archaeology within the in-game politics.
  • What is Old is New Again – Using archaeological and anthropological research, I look into the material culture of neopaganism, Wicca, and modern witchcraft and how these practices recreate the past for modern day rituals.
  • Trowling Theme Parks – Examining how theme parks use elements of archaeological narrative (and in some cases, archaeology itself!) as part of their design and environment.
  • #FolkloreThursday – Occasional posts exploring the folklore behind some archaeological animal remains.

And if you want to support my work, buy me a coffee!
