Play • 47 min

In this episode of A Life In Ruins podcast, Connor and Davíd interview Joshua Herrin; archaeologist and artifacts laboratory manager of the Augusta Veteran’s Curation Program. Josh originally started his career at Georgia, Southern University, but then found himself in the United States Army.

After finishing his tenure with the National Guard, Josh re-enrolled in his undergraduate studies and later, earned his masters degree from Georgia Southern as well.

Connor and David interviewed Josh about his nontraditional career path in archaeology and especially his focus on historic archaeology in the south. Josh is very knowledgeable about Georgia History, and the three have a fascinating conversation about the history of the colony and then later the state of Georgia.

They end the show talking about Josh and Davíd’s job at the veterans Curation program, and how it’s such a unique job, as it is the definition of applied anthropology.
