On this episode, we have Bill Auchter (Archaeothoughts; ArchaeoRPG) to talk about his career journey from bank teller to cultural resources manager, then from telecommunications archaeologist to archaeogamer.

What is the history of Maryland, where Bill is based? How was he inspired by the Smithsonian museums closeby in Washington, D.C.? Why did Bill pivot from working in banking to undertaking an undergraduate course in archaeology, and what strengths did working in banking give him during his studies? What is involved in the day-to-day work of cultural resource management (CRM), and what are some of Bill's favorite memories of working in CRM?

Why did Bill stop working in commercial archaeology fieldwork recently and what projects in virtual archaeology has been up to most recently? What is archaeogaming, and how can children, students and adults learn archaeology through the world of computer games, board games and massive multiplayer online roleplaying games? What themes or topics are archaeologists exploring in games currently?
