In this episode Carlton and David dip their toes into the style vs function debate in archaeology. This debate towards material culture stems from the transition of the Culture History approach into the New Archaeology paradigm of the mid 20th century. David and Carlton talk about the origin of the debate then provide several case-studies to illustrate their point. Per usual, the episode goes off the rails half way through the episode and somehow N*Sync, Elon Musk, and the next gen gaming consoles get brought up. As is tradition.
