Along with my colleagues Tara Copplestone and Andrew Reinhard, I am now one of the hosts of a new podcast, 8bit Test Pit, streaming on the Archaeology Podcast Network. On the podcast we talk about archaeogaming, the intersection of culture in material and immaterial worlds, digital ethics, methodology for excavation in game spaces, and how games can be used for archaeological interpretation and outreach.
It’s crazy fun, and a great opportunity to work through some of the issues of our new sub-discipline that need hashing out. We’d love suggestions for topics for the show, and are keen to have guests on to talk about their own research in archaeogaming and games-located archaeological studies.
