Once upon a time I was an archaeologist, digging up garbage and more interesting garbage, and maybe a dead body for several years. Then, the unthinkable happened: I didn’t want to be broke anymore. Le gasp. So I switched careers and am now a tech marmot.
In order to continue feeding my love of history and material culture I eventually committed to joining the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA) as a way to continue learning and geek out with others.
Since I have to be as difficult as possible I am drawn towards to a period and culture with large gaps in the archaeological record. Joy.
