Archaeometry at the SAA, Th 31 March 2011

The preliminary program is available for the 2011 Annual Meeting of the Society for American Archaeology in Sacramento.

I'll put up some of the sessions which look to me as if they contain significant amounts of archaeometry/geoarchaeology, by meeting date.

By the way, I hate the way SAA organizes its sessions, with organizers being able to cherry pick contributors without an open process of submission.

For Thursday 31 March ( a good day for SAS-sponsored symposia):

General Session: Pleistocene Landscapes,Technologies, and Lifeways in the Old World

Poster Session: Global Perspectives on Ceramic Analysis

Sponsored Symposium Chemical Residue Analysis in Archaeology: Method Development and Residue Diagenesis (Sponsored by The Society for Archaeological Sciences)

Poster Session: Paleoethnobotanical Studies
