Wolfe and Mark DeLucas sit down with faculty Türkan Pilavci, art historian and field archaeologist, for a wide-ranging conversation about her work, including her archaeological field work in Turkey, the problems with art museums, the meaning and periodization of "Ancient Egypt"; how modern states draw onand discard—ancient history (for example, the mummy parade!); archaeology in pop culture (Indiana Jones: archaeologistor adventurer?), and what it's like to be a woman at the dig.
