I am an archaeologist

We want to celebrate this #dayofarch sharing with all of you the English subtitled version of our video spot, I am an archaeologist, whose Spanish version has more than 8.000 visits. In the first anniversary of its publication, we have decided to share it worldwide in an international language.

Based on Archaeomanifesto’s idea ‘I encouraged others to follow my path’ we have looked for that special moment, timeless and universal, in which a boy discovers one of the diverse facets of Archaeology.

We’d like to dedicate this video to all those archaeologists who enjoy their profession. It is created to acknowledge our work, “underground and underwater, in the suffocating heat or with scarce resources…”; especially to reveal the role of Archaeology as a scientific labour, based on a complex research method, but a real vocation full of passion, however. Get to know us better.

I am an archaeologist‘ was recorded at The Santa Cruz Library, the historical library of the University of Valladolid with an international prestige (Valladolid, Spain).

Enjoy it!

The future will be the past

Hello, and happy Day of Archaeology to all of you.

We are an Archaeology studio, Flashback Archaeologica, formed by a couple who enjoy every second they have and with a personal purpose: introducing people to the values of Archaeology -our authentic vocation and proud profession. Apart from the classical activities carried out by an Archaeology company, we combine our educative labor in Archaeo-workshops with our Flashback merchandising.

Recently we have recorded a video that resumes the concepts we define in our Archaeomanifesto, the cornerstone of our project; a compendium of the feelings that our discipline, Archaeology, transmit us.  We have tried to capture on it all the sensations that Archaeology evokes in terms of  Roy Batt (the famous Blade Runner replicant). We seek to convey all the emotions, dreams, experiences and the history of humankind through the eyes of the archaeologist. Timeless and universal, the narrative is part of the maxim “The future will be the past”.

Although it is not translated to English, you can read the Archaeomanifesto’s text in our website, and discover it. We hope you will enjoy it. Is has been made to acknowledge our work, underground and underwater, in the suffocating heat or with scarce resources:
