Why did the SAA get so little media coverage?

You'd think that a major national archaeology meeting would get good media coverage. Yet when I did a Google news search on the SAA Atlanta meeting, I get only 4 hits on 3 different stories. (Lexis Nexis Academic does no better.) What's up with that? Are the newspapers too busy trying to survive? Or is the SAA, well, just pre-occupied with other things?

  1. perhaps it's because archaeology is perceived as having very little social value (read: instrumentally-challenged). archaeologists are not aware of this.
