By now, I’m sure you’ve all seen pictures of the CART members in their finest business attires (we look so good, don’t we?). But SHA wasn’t all about fun and games, dancing the night away, socializing with colleagues, and generally having an archaeological good time. It was mostly about those things, but we did come to work, right? Right? No? We changed the plan? We didn’t present a super awesome session to a packed house, with people sitting on the floor and clambering in the hall at the doorway to get a closer look at our super sweet power points? Was it all just a wonderful dream?
Nope. It really happened. Behold. Our cast of presenters.
The best photos we could possibly find of all the presenters 🙂
Ms. Kathleen Lowe, Session Co-Chair, and Organizer Extrodinaire!
The beginning of an amazing, captivating, spell-bounding, informative, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious session!
Dr. Elizabeth Crowell, Session Co-Chair. She also presented
another paper just an hour before this! What a trooper!
Our audience, watching with rapt attention.
A brief interlude with Kathleen…
Ms. Alisa Pettitt, our Prehistoric historian and wearer of super fly suits!
Mr. Christopher Sperling, Fairfax County Archaeologist, with important, up to the minute, breaking news about your favorite Colonial port town!
Ms. Megan Veness, rocking the archaeology and GIS analysis! (And pretty snazzy jewelry, don’t you think?)
More GIS analysis. There were a whole lot of maps.
Ms. Aimee Wells, rocking her vote for the excellent band of merry Fairfax County volunteers and all the hard work they do for us!
Well, that’s about it for this update. Now that you got to see everyone in their shininess, I want to end this post on a more serious note. As we are all aware, this year is an important election year. I want to leave you with this note from our very own Chris Sperling, who is officially announcing his candidacy! A vote for Sperling is a vote for CART!
