In episode 5 of the Archaeologyin30 podcast – ArchaeoArt – we’ll talk to FPAN Central Regional Public Archaeology Coordinator Nigel Rudolph. An archaeologist and artist, Nigel is a man of many talents. We’ll chat with Nigel about the Crystal River Archaeological State Park in his region and the 2016 Florida Archaeology Month poster titled “Artisans of the Woodland.” Nigel’s art is featured in this poster, which won 3rd place in the annual Society for American Archaeology poster competition. We’ll also talk to Nigel about his work as a ceramic artist and how his background in art applies to interpreting cultural material and public archaeology. Finally, Nigel discusses how he made a dugout canoe and a vernacular headstone.
