SHA Slot and Happy Holidays from FOFA

We scored a wonderful time slot at the Society for Historical Archaeology Conference in Baltimore this January! It’s coming up so quickly, and the weekend is so action-packed that everyone can only hope to be allotted a space that will be not too early (for those sleeping in) and not too late (beware conference brain burnout!) … and we are some of the lucky few!

mysterious to be unravelled.”
