About this Episode

On this episode, we have the privilege of speaking with a modern-day archaeologist Dr. Adam Rabinowitz and archaeology grad student Susan Crane. Both take us into the ancient world of Romania through their exciting (and sometimes not-so-exciting) archaeological expeditions and unbelievable discoveries.
