Western Digs

Western Digs is a science news site that investigates the archaeology, anthropology, and paleontology of the American West. Published by Blake de Pastino — Chief Writer and Editor of SciShow, SciShow Space, and Crash Course — Western Digs explores the West, while examining how science can help us understand history.


WD’s exclusive reporting has been cited by Newsweek, NPR, Reuters, Science, Smithsonian, RealClearScience, and many other sources.


Whether it’s dinosaur fossils in Montana, Puebloan villages in Arizona, or landfills in New Mexico larded with old Atari cartridges, remnants of history are all around us, waiting to be discovered. We think that understanding the past is key to making sense of the present. And we believe that history + science = good reading.
