We now publish RSS feeds.
A smartphone/tablet-friendly version of the AAPA Annual Meeting program is now available (it works in any browser). It has several features not present in the PDF version. However, if the two versions differ, the PDF version is definitive. This is a beta version of the browsable program, and there are undoubtedly bugs and errors. Caveat emptor!
The Huari-Ancash Archaeological and Bioarchaeological Project is now accepting applications for the 2013 summer session. This year, three programs will be offered: P1 (2 weeks in June) is a Lab-based workshop during which we will continue to analyze human remains from Marcajirca, a highland funerary Inca site located in the Cordillera Blanca in the Ancash region north of Lima ; P2 (3 weeks June-July) is a Bioarchaeology field school dedicated to excavating Inca funerary structures (Chullpas and caves) and open-air structures in Marcajirca; P3 (3 weeks, July-August ) is an archaeology field school in Huamparan as well as a survey in the area around Huari and along the royal Inca roads. The workshop and field schools are training programs open to all students.
The course entitled “Reading old bodies: New directions in the bio-archaeological heritage” will be held July 1st -12th, 2013. The goal of this two-week course is to make students familiar with the different methods and approaches developed in the last decades to study and interpret ancient human remains, considered as a multidimensional source for the comprehension of the past.
