Following our annual tradition, we're capping off 2015 and starting 2016 with a look at the things that have been unearthed from the ground, rivers, houses, and the like over the course of the year. Although some of the things we're talking about were really found prior to 2015, this year is the year that the findings were announced or published. And, sadly, we again find ourselves with mostly news from North America, Europe and Egypt ... we kept track of a lot more findings this year, but we'd still like to feature more discoveries from other parts of the world.

In today's episode, Egypt stuff, many updates to past podcasts, and shipwrecks.

If you want to check out everything we complied over the course of the year, here's our Unearthed! in 2015 pinboard.
