In this episode, we are joined by Chris Johnston who is the Operations Director and Project Archaeologist for the Paleocultural Research Group. As always, we kick off the episode investigating Chris's introduction to archaeology and how he turned in his Buffalo horns for Ram horns. We delve into the Paleocultural Research Group (PCRG), what it does, how it operates, and what it is like to work for them. We tie up the episode talking about how archaeology can often focus on the "micro-scale" of that past on how we, as archaeologists, can better bring back the "people-ness" to older archaeological components in our research and in the literature.
