The Archaeology Indies


If you’re in the Yay area, and are so inclined, join me at the Presidio Officers’ Club tonight at 7pm, where we celebrate Archaeology Month in California with a presentation of short “indie” films by archaeologists. I’ll be presenting my first short film, “Skeuomorphs.”

Here’s the official announcement:

Archaeology Indies

Curious to learn more about local archaeology and archaeologists? This evening will feature a line-up of short films by Bay Area archaeology students and professionals who have conducted research at sites throughout California and the world. Filmmakers will discuss their projects and the challenges of presenting an unfiltered view of the past. We invite you to join us for an evening of discovery.
