It’s that time of year again – MEMSAP at the Meetings 2013

Society for American Archaeology and the Paleoanthropology Society

by Andrew Zipkin (Doctoral Candidate, The George Washington University)

In just a few short weeks the Paleoanthropology Society and the Society for American Archaeology will be holding their annual meetings in Honolulu, Hawaii.  Not surprisingly, turnout is expected to be high and competition to get a paper or poster accepted at the Paleos this year was fierce.  MEMSAP team members will be presenting on several occasions over the course of conference week; all the details are below so if you’re in Honolulu during the week of April 1st come check out the latest research from MEMSAP (and then hit the beach).
