Blast From the Past: Raised History Video

Chris Fastie making the Raised History video in 2004.

Chris Fastie saw the video of our recent Wisconsin field work and kindly uploaded a video he made back in 2004. The video features a group of us collecting a core from Bloomingdale Bog in the Adirondacks of New York. Perhaps it is a bit dated, but it is very professionally done and quite funny!  I sometimes use this video to introduce paleoecology in my classes.

From Chris: “Extracting a three meter peat core from Bloomingdale Bog near Saranac Lake, New York on September 17, 2004. This video lived on DVDs until July, 2012 when it was encoded as mp4.”

  1. Bob you must 1) be very well organized, and 2) have a really good memory to have dredged up a photo of me from that day in 2004. Someday you will have to tell me how many of the names attached to those images of testate amoebae in the video are bogus. I can’t remember how many of them I made up.

    Here’s to your first decade of peat coring!

  2. I was kind of hoping for a big finish, like, striking oil. Great music.
