The Archaeological Institute of America has announced that Professor Paul Goldberg will receive the 2010 Pomerance Award for Scientific Contributions to Archaeology. The Science Award is one of the two greatest honors that the AIA confers. The Science Medal will be awarded at the awards ceremony during the AIA annual meeting in Anaheim, CA (January 6-9, 2010).
I met Paul during my first trip to Israel to collect archaeomagnetc samples in 1984. Or maybe it was the second trip in 1986. Who can remember any more? Anyway, I have appreciated him as a colleague and friend ever since.
