Archaeocast 1: Excavation Podcast

Wessex Archaeology has launched its first podcast. A podcast is just like a radio programme which you can listen to here, in your web browser, or download to listen to whenever you like on your computer or mp3 player (such as an iPod). Find out more about podcasting in our podcasting guide.
It visits the excavations on Cranborne Chase in Dorset, where we are running our annual practical archaeology course. In the podcast we hear from Martin Green, the local farmer and famous archaeologist, who explains about the prehistoric landscape in which his farm and the dig are set.
Chris Ellis, project officer for the excavation, explains about the skills being taught on the course, and what has been uncovered during the first week of digging.
Lastly, we hear from two course participants to find out how they are finding their first taste of life as archaeologists, and their experiences on the dig.
