MAP#38 – Medieval Archaeology News

Archaeology Medieval ArchivesI was first introduced to archaeology as a kid and up on the movie screen was a whip carrying, fedora wearing relic hunter. When Indiana Jones wasn’t fighting Nazis or running for his life he was on a quest to gather ancient artifacts.

Today on the Medieval Archives Podcast we are going to examine real life archaeology, not the fictional portrayal. Since the discovery of Richard III in the Leicester car park there have been numerous other medieval archaeology discoveries. Medieval knights, dungeons, Black Death skeletons and so much more!
