Volume 2 Episode 1 of the Illinois Archaeology podcast has a slight echo because the office of the Illinois State Archaeologist has been cleared out. The tapping you hear throughout is Dr. Thomas Emerson’s cowboy boots, that he wore for the past 25 years as Director of the Illinois State Archaeological Survey. On the eve of his retirement, Dr. Emerson gives a real and honest look back at his career, the challenges, the memorable moments and more. We are truly honored and pleased to present the final podcast with the Illinois State Archaeologist, Dr. Thomas Emerson.
Editor’s Note: Please excuse a quick ending, I think it’s clear we were both a little choked up toward the end of the podcast. As always, thanks for listening.
