"Archaeologists with Computers"

I am an archaeologist and my husband is a game developer/animated film producer. I love it when our fields collide (at 1:20):

But really, who should be more insulted here: the archaeologists or the game developers?? Or maybe, just maybe, she is making a critical observation that archaeologists, like game developers, envision and create our own perceived realities that are then consumed by the wider public. For this random Russian lady, history is but an imagined community in which we all take part.

Or she just thinks we are all a bunch of geeks. She wouldn't be that far from the truth!
