Welcome to Hidden Histories. In this series, we take a closer look at the world around us and explore the hidden depths of our shared history. Today we take a look at Doggerland. Note: This video is a complete remake (dub and visuals) of the 'Welcome to Doggerland' video from 2011. This was a chance to correct my slip up, calling Dogger Bank 'Doggers Bank' but also this video is generally more polished. #Doggerland #Archaeology #Archaeosoup

Welcome to In Focus. In this series we take a closer look at particular sites, finds and objects from the world of Archaeology. Today marks the 25th anniversary of Ötzi's discovery... Note: This is work is for the love of the topic, not for profit and essentially editorialistic in nature. It will never be televised. By definition, as a person who has not visited the museum all images belong to respective copyright holders though the nature of the work is transformative (in terms of context) and adds to the 'value' of the topic at hand. #Ötzi #Iceman #Archaeosoup

Welcome to In Focus. In this series we take a closer look at particular sites, finds and objects from the world of Archaeology. Today we travel to the Altai Mountains and the Ukok Plateau to meet the Ice Maiden. Please Note: 1 I am well aware that the 'Ice Maiden's' remains currently reside in the Ethnographic Institute Novosibirsk. However, she was studied initially in Moscow and the Academy of Sciences in Moscow are arguing the case to keep her. I did not say she's still there. 2 Apologies that the video quality cannot be turned up to '720'... This was due to a bandwidth error. A higher quality backup is available.

Say "Aaaaaaah"! Note: Credit for the filed Viking teeth must go to Oxford Archaeology. They released the image in a Press Release announcing the Dorset mass grave pit in 2009.

Raise your Trowels and as One We'll Call! "We Don't Do Dinosaurs!" Buy this song here: http://archaeosoup.com/archaeosoup-music-store/ As requested; the lyrics: 1) Ancient Tools and Burials, Plants and seeds, Neanderthals, All these things (We make no apology), Are the study of Archaeology. Ch)But we don't do Dinosaurs, No we don't do Dinosaurs, Raise you trowels, as one we'll call, No, we don't do Dinosaurs! 2) Diggin' in a trench, monuments, Going' to the pub when the day is spent! Funny bearded blokes (you will see), Are the staple of Archaeology! Brdg) Roundhouses and Romans, Human evolution makes us smile... Finding a wall and high-fiving, Extrapolating from a single stone the extent of a whole complex and then publishing it as a completely known fact and making sure than everyone across the country knows about it because of a TV programme... Makes us smile...

Janet Montgomery's doctoral thesis awarded in 2002 (available to download from the AHDS website: http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/archives/view/montgomery_2005/) was the first study to apply combined radiogenic lead and strontium isotope analysis to British archaeological humans. It explored such topics as how enamel lead compositions of archaeological humans become culturally focussed following the widespread use of metals, differential diagenesis of enamel, dentine and bone and the potential of lead and strontium to identify migration to, and within, Britain.

Welcome to Archaeology Gastronomy. Here, with the help of '41 Feasts', we seek out Ancient Recipes, attempt to cook them and share the results with the world! Today we try our hand at making Viking style bread. Recipe: The recipe is based on an analysis of Viking Age bread, found in Birka, Sweden. Ingredients: About 150 g barley flour About 50 g wholemeal flour 2 tsp crushed flax seeds About 100 ml water 2 tsp lard or butter A pinch of salt - To taste! Method: Work all the ingredients together into a dough and knead. Let the dough rest cold for at least one hour, preferably longer. If left for longer, natural yeast in the atmosphere will start to work on the dough and add to the proving process. Shape the dough into flat cakes. Bake them in a dry cast iron pan on the stove over medium heat, a few minutes on each side, or in the oven at 170 degrees, for 10--12 minutes. Best eaten while warm. Enjoy!
