Elsewhere

John Swogger, the illustrator at Çatalhöyük from 1998 to 2006, has a guest post up at Comics Forum entitled “The Sequential Art of the Past: Archaeology, comics and the dynamics of an emerging genre“.  He discusses his and others’ use of comics to transmit archaeological knowledge to a range of audiences. John has been advocating for the use of comics in archaeology for a while now, including at the Visualisation in Archaeology’s 2011 conference, the Society for American Archaeology’s 2012 conference. He’ll also be at next year’s Society for American Archaeology’s conference in Hawaii.

  1. Cheers, Katy. I’m also planning to give a paper at the Comics Forum conference this November about doing a comic based on my field journal from our 2012 excavation season on Palau.
