January 15, 2015 | Ramblings | by Jamie Stott

Mmmkay. For those of you who have seen South Park and get my Mr. Mackey reference, good on ya. For the rest of you, I’m sorry that doesn’t make any sense. Today I wanted to talk about a subject that gets brought up over and over for me, and is perhaps something that a lot of […]

Autumn Archaeology in Randolph

October 22, 2014 | Ramblings | by Jamie Stott

I love archaeology most times of the year, but there is something about being outside during autumn that is just plain fantastic. The smells and the colors seem more bold, and since you know winter is right around the corner you just sorta soak it all in while you can. Before it’s all covered in […]

Archaeology Excavation 101

April 23, 2014 | Ramblings | by Jamie Stott

A few weeks ago I went out with a small field crew into Utah’s west desert. The first few days were spent systematically surveying our project area, and the last few days were spent excavating. There are so many misconceptions about what archaeologists actually do when they dig, so I thought I’d take a moment […]

Site Recording in Northwest Utah

August 12, 2013 | Ramblings | by Jamie Stott

I can safely say LONG TIME NO SEE! Just want to apologize for being absent for most of the summer. My schedule went absolutely crazy and I was in and out of the field and when I was home I was running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to catch up […]

The Flute Player

May 17, 2013 | Artifact, Prehistoric | by Jamie Stott

Sedg held in his hands his most prized possession. Standing on the edge of a tall mesa he closed his eyes and held out his arms, offering up the flute to the powers that be. The wind was stronger out here on the point, and the feathers that were attached to the flute by thin […]
