Episode 16: Horsin' Around

William Taylor

Today on the show, we are joined from Germany by Dr. William Taylor, a real life archaeologist! William got his undergraduate degree in International Relations from Carleton College. He then got his Master’s and PhD in Anthropology-Archaeology from the University of New Mexico. He is currently a post-doctoral researcher in the Archaeology department at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History. We talked about what it’s like in Mongolia, why we should care about ancient horses, and the damage done to science by Indiana Jones. We hope you like it!
