I am Paige Reed; I was born in Ireland in 1970 and since I was a teenager, I always dreamed of having more knowledge about archaeology and scientific updates about it.
I am attracted to the history of civilizations and the development of excavations in which many archaeologists find many artefacts from the previous decades.
Nowadays, I have a job as a marriage and family therapist, but I believe that studying archaeology should be an important part of education of teenagers.
They will be constantly increasing their knowledge about the recovery and analysis of material culture. I consider archaeology both social science and a branch of the humanities.
In the fall of the 90’s, I was talking with my sister about my interest in archaeology and I had an idea. I wanted to create a digital magazine for teens and adults who want to indulge in their passion for archaeology and learn new things for the future.
I started with The Irish Field School of Prehistoric Archaeology, including all the information any archaeology lover needs to know as a way to support universities and other organizations.
I have focused on keeping the articles friendly for both beginners and professionals in the field.
The main purpose of this magazine is to show our readers how important the details about prehistory and history of humans are. We want everybody to understand the relevance of archaeology and its studies, as we feel everybody can do with a bit of knowledge here.
I keep striving to meet all the requirements sent to me by my loyal readers. Although you can find a lot of information in textbooks, I try to keep it friendlier which makes my magazine easier to read.
If you have sometimes ended up confused and reading about other similar sciences like palaeontology, you are in the right place. I write strictly about archaeology and what relates to it, with only a few passing mentions of sister sciences to provide information on context.
