Safety Travels for Archaeologists During the Excavations Abroad

Travel safety. It’s a real concern, given the nature of the world today. And yet, we love it, and we continue to transport ourselves around the world for those new experiences.

Gun at the Airport

I was at the airport on the way home from a work trip, carrying our survey instrument.

An enthusiastic young man approached me and asked rather loudly, "is that a gun??"
