Archaeocast 2: Excavation and experimental archaeology (podcast)

In this week’s podcast, we hear about the progress of Jake Keen’s iron smelting experiments in his bloomery furnace, complete with the clattering of bellows and the roaring of flames. Course participants explain what they have been excavating as the site begins to unfold, from postholes to fox’s teeth!
This week’s podcast was recorded by David Parry, on location at our annual Practical Archaeology Course on Cranborne Chase in Dorset, and has a duration of about 20 minutes.
