Auditory Heritage at the Trowel’s Edge
A day in the trenches comes with hard work, a lot of sun, and a rich array of auditory stimuli. Here we thought it appropriate to record some of the heritage sounds one hears when excavating and to link photographs of the tools alongside their performances. Of course, each tool and each sound is made possible by a person. Without the dedication and expertise of the entire field team, it would be impossible to collect the compelling KAP datasets.
We recommend listening first without peeking at the images and captions below to see if you might be able to link the sounds with their origins. Depending on the context, one chooses the appropriate tools. Happy listening!
Look forward to more posts from Gygaia Projects soon!
