Summing Up the SHAs

Aaaaand we’re back!

The Society for Historical Archaeology’s annual meeting is always one to remember, and this year’s event was no exception. It was a wonderful opportunity to network and collaborate with our colleagues, catch up with long-lost friends, learn about current archaeological research on a worldwide scale, and inform the archaeological community about our work at Old Colchester Park and Preserve. Thanks again to all of our supporters! We absolutely made the most of our time.

Please enjoy the pictures below. More will be coming in a day or so. 

The view from our hotel room! A mile from the conference hotel, but a nice walk during this mild winter weather. 
While most of our time was spent attending sessions, Kathleen found time to tour the USS Constellation, which is moored in the Inner Habor. The double mast visible in the picture above was necessary to steer the ship during bad weather. The Constellation was most famous during the Civil War.

Did you catch the typo??
