An Unusual Source of Funding…

Colleen Morgan over at Middle Savagery is a pretty awesome archaeology blogger.  She is a Ph.D. candidate at Berkeley. “Her dissertation is based on building archaeological narratives with New Media, using digital photography, video, mobile and locative devices.” —The Maeander Project via kickstarter.com.

She has had some very cool ideas in the past- using modern technology as well as alternative media to study/publish archaeology.

Her most recent studious/publication endeavor, The Maeander Project funded by kickstarter.com sounds fascinating.

I’d never heard of kickstarter before, but it is an awesome funding source. Their slogan is “A new way to fund and follow creativity.”  A creative person or project signs up and asks for help funding a creative venture of some sort.

In Colleen’s case- she is asking for funding for her archaeological field season in Turkey. If you were to help fund her, you get something in return! The options run from an e-book recording the archaeological work to a WHS pointing trowel!
