Today whilst spelunking (aka filming) in the museum, Emily and I discovered the diaphonized herpetology specimens. #museumsecrets (at The Field Museum)

Love this photo taken by Intern Katie. It’s been great having her around for the last nine months!
Did you know that more than 46% of all video views on our channel come from outside of the United States? I don’t know if that’s typical, but you can thank Katie for putting English captions on the majority of our videos. She’s also been instrumental in helping to orchestrate and manage a dynamic group of International volunteers that work around the clock translating those captions into their respective languages. Our first episode offers captions in 22 different languages and I find that incredible. 
So, huge thanks to our international translators for their dedication and enthusiasm, and major thanks to Katie for all of her help! Here’s to another few crazy months of museum discoveries and grilled cheese dates. 

I am thankful for whoever it is that translates the videos from American English to the more relaxed Australian English.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Not sure exactly what you mean by “translates the videos from American English to the more relaxed Australian English,” but we’ve had a number of people help to create the original English captions from which the translations are translated. I’ve done quite a few, but the real credit goes to Martina, one of our Czech translators that has been there since the beginning. Her and a few others did a good number of the older episodes, even though for some English wasn’t their first language. Shoutout to you guys and all the hard ! Perhaps the whole American vs Australian English thing is just the tone of the show. We try to stay true to Emily’s expressions, though admittedly, some of them are just too… incredible for words. :]

Ceremonial arrowpoints from Mound 72 at Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site in Collinsville, Illinois. The 1200 points were found in caches with the famous “beaded burial” of an elite chief laid on a bed of shell beads. His burial was surrounded by the remains of over 300 individuals. (at Cahokia Mounds World Heritage Site)

Þjóðveldisbærinn Stöng is a reconstructed viking-era Long house or farmstead in Iceland. It is a replica of the building which was buried under volcanic ash in 1104 following the eruption of the volcano Hekla.
The reconstruction was built in 1974 as a part of the national celebrations of the 1100th anniversary of the settlement of Iceland in 874.

Skull of the Magdalenian Woman, cranium of the most complete Upper Paleolithic skeleton in North America, dating between 17,000-12,000 BP. She was discovered in 1911 in the mouth of the Cap-Blanc cave in France when an excavation crew accidentally struck her head with a pick axe. She was reconstructed from the broken pieces in the 1930s but was left looking more ape- than human-like.  Today we are taking her to be CT scanned on a microscopic level in order to rebuild the skull in software, which will eventually be 3D printed, in order to have a more physiologically accurate model without risking damage to the original. TECHNOLOGY (at The Field Museum)

Science is happening right before my eyes! :D
