Inside the mind of an archaeologist

I believe that this originally came from Past Horizons, but I found it on Peabodyslament.

Don’t know about the daydream about finding the lost jungle city – more likely raising the funds to carry on for another season if I remember correctly!

The crowd-sourcing web project bringing amateur and professional archaeologists together

The launch of MicroPasts by UCL and the British Museum seems like a great plan to connect some of the areas of archaeology which traditionally avoid eachother.  Based on the successful South African model of crowdcrafting we should see many important and successful collaborations taking off across the archaeological sector.

From the article:

With only limited funds and time, professional archaeologists consistently struggle to protect and interpret the UK's vast array of archaeological finds and resources. Yet there are huge pools of amateur groups and volunteers who are not only passionate but also skilled and knowledgeable about archaeology in the UK.

Now a new web platform called MicroPasts has been produced in a collaboration between University College London (UCL) and the British Museum to connect institutions and volunteers so that they can create, fund and work on archaeological projects together.
