And so, it begins…

As we begin our journey around the sun this year, so begins this blog.

This blog will be a collection of tales, essays, presentations,  stories, jokes, photos, and SO much more related to archaeology and history as seen and experienced by the people who make up Tom Origer & Associates. Check us out at to learn more about our firm and the services we provide as cultural resource managers.

Some of us here at the office thought a blog would be a great way to disseminate knowledge, begin dialogues, and make ourselves known. Plus, hello, bandwagon! The Society for Historical Archaeology just began a blog, the Archaeological Institute of America has a blog (incidentally, I came up with our blog name before seeing theirs) , Terry Brock does all sorts of blogging and social media. It’s a great way to interact with peers and the public.

The whole idea of blogging is a new concept for some of our staff, so things might be a bit slow at first, but I practically grew up on the internet, so I’ll make sure we get this thing going! We would also love to hear what you have to say, about our posts, about our field, about us!

Here’s to 2012 and the broadening of horizons, cheers!

One response to “And so, it begins…

  1. Best of luck! What you are talking about doing here is something I’ve been wanting my office and company to start. I gave a paper about this at the Blogging Archaeology panel at the 2011 SAAs.
    Your About statement really sums up many of my points about blogging being an ideal way for CRM firms to engage in public archaeology. Interested to see it in action!
