Is a representative of “Archaeologists Engage”, an independent non-profit international organisation that promotes and enables engagement between professionals and the public. They run two blogs with contributions from around the world. The Ivory Tower blogposts focus on the dynamics between professionals and their audience to inform and inspire archaeologists on how to engage with the wider world. The blog includes articles from both within and outside of the archaeology profession. The second is the House Archaeologist that is a direct communication between archaeologists and the public. Posts include research results, information about interesting sites, and articles on how we do archaeology, as well as interpretations of what people did in the past. This blog aims to give the public insight into what goes on in archaeology right now.
