In New York City today, possibly record crowds expected for today's pride parade. Not only because previous parades were held online because of COVID, but because of Friday's Supreme Court ruling overturning roe V wade. That's got the LGBTQ community on high alert, especially after concurrent remarks to the decision by justice clarence Thomas, targeting previous Supreme Court decisions that made marriage equality the law of the land. We were talking about justice Thomas earlier. We just can't believe he still has a job. I just don't think people realize step by step that they're going to slowly take things away.

"Is not necessarily the glamorous part that you see on television. And probably not the weather conditions are probably not all that one. That's what I was going to say. How do you tolerate the heat? Because India is very warm. In humid, how do you tolerate the heat Monica when you're there? So I would say that it's something that you get used to because it is just part of the environment. So I'll tell you about a summer that I had once three very hot experiences. I did a summer field season in India just before the monsoon because I wanted to see what the weather conditions would have been like other than the nice times of year when we generally go and do field work. And that was really instructive because by about 9 o'clock in the morning, you did not see any living creature on the landscape, except for the archeologists. I think there's no dog, no person, no cow, nothing. Just us out there. And that gave me a much better appreciation for what it was that ancient people went through to create their sites and to farm their land. And then second experience that same summer, I was very close to DRB cure in southern Turkey. And it was suffocatingly hot. It was very, very difficult. The project director there said that any decision that you make after about ten o'clock in the morning is probably not a good decision. And then the third hot experience was in the American Southwest. And that was sort of my extra long summer archeology. And they were all unbelievably hot in their own way. But it was a great learning experience. And I guess I just tolerate heat more than other people. Please don't ask me to go work in the Arctic. I don't think that would be a great idea. Exactly. My goodness. That's good for you. Yeah. Yeah. You know, I know when we had our initial conversation with you Monica, you shared with us the concept of piecing from fragments. Could you elaborate on this philosophy of yours? So one of the things I appreciate about the creative community that you have here is that you have many people who are artists or writers or painters or welders, and people who work with the earth, people who work with plants. And all of us are working with little pieces of things. Especially in archeology, we rarely find anything that is complete. We find broken pieces of pottery that somebody long ago through a way. We find broken pieces of buildings that have deteriorated since the time that they were actually lived in. And as archeologists, that's our palate. That's what we're trying to work with in order to be able to understand a whole life in the past or a whole site in the past. We've just got these little fragments. Now, if you transfer that into thinking about the ways that we all work with fragments today, regardless of our creative professions, we never have a complete anything, do we? I mean, if we're working with making ceramics if we're working with making paintings if we're working with making poetry if we're working with making music, we start with like a little fragment. You know like a little fragment of a tune or a little doodle. And we eventually craft that into a whole story. It's so true. It's exactly true. I think we do that in our personal lives as well as our creative lives every second of the day, really, because we're going on the breadcrumbs and the fragments of maybe knowledge that we're seeking for the day. Yeah, and thank you, Monica for sharing that philosophy. Because our listeners, as you know, as you pointed out most are very creative people they think creatively. But I don't think any one of them have ever thought about it from that perspective. That's an interesting perspective you just shared. Everything is fragmentary. Everything is created from experience. And even people that you know really well friends that you've had for years or your significant other, your partner, your work colleagues. They're always likely to come out with something that you didn't know. So there's some other fragment that all of a sudden explains something that you had never quite realized before. So it's not just about physical stuff that's fragments, but it's also about ideas and perspectives and emotions and things that people share with you. No wonderful. It's so wonderful. So that makes me want to ask, how does archeological research inform your daily life and vice versa? So for one thing, whenever I break something, it's not so bad. It's true. I get a chance to see. It's, you know, it's inside. And how it was made. And, you know, being an archeologist is about picking up other pieces of broken things from other people's lives. And, you know, when I'm making garbage, I'm just passing that along in the archeological record for the future. So that's about the little, you know, the little things that happened. I think that also it gives me a pretty long perspective on human behavior and human activities. There is certainly many things about human behavior that are sub optimal. But those behaviors have been around for a long time. And also positive human behaviors. You know, the ability to decorate things that don't require decoration is something that goes back very far in human history. And I think that that's a very hopeful sign. You know, if you break a figurine, it's natural that somebody will pick it up and with their delicate hands and fingers they'll sit there and try to piece it back together, but that is like you mentioned earlier, they have to have a keen sense of observation to see where this piece might fit to that piece. They may be heartbroken because it may be something that was really a favorite of theirs. But they're piecing it back together. Yeah. I think we all like to do that, is that true? Absolutely. You know, whenever we encounter something that we think of as broken, whether it's an object or a relationship, we think about how it might be made whole again. We probably should ask whether or not we should bother. Very true. And in the end, you know, what you have are the memories of that object or that relationship with that person that are the ways that you put together a fragmentary set of impressions for yourself. That's good. That's very interesting. Yeah. Now we often see archeologists out in the field doing research and basically digging up history. What is the reality of working as a team in these various sites? One of the reasons that I became an archeologist and that archeology was very attractive to me is that it is a team pursuit. You know where I was being a historian or other kinds of fields are really a person working in an archive alone, but you can't do archeology by yourself, which is important. You need people who are on a team. And, you know, I'd like to talk about somebody who was in a very important mentor to me, a man named bob powers from the National Park Service. And I worked for him for several seasons on an archeological survey project that had a whole bunch of different kinds of people on it. There were retirees that were professional archeologists..
