Fryxell Award

Next week is the deadline for nominations for the 2010 Fryxell Award, presented by the Society of American Archaeology in recognition for interdisciplinary excellence by a scientist whose research has contributed significantly to American archaeology.

The winner of the 2009 award is Michael Glascock, Director of the Archaeometry Laboratory at the University of Missouri Research Reactor, an honor well deserved for Mike's many accomplishments utilizing trace element analysis for chemical fingerprinting. There will be a symposium in honor of the winner at the Society for American Archaeology meeting in Atlanta. Congratulations, Mike!

The 2010 Fryxell Award will be in the area of general interdisciplinary studies. The award will be given at the SAA's 75th Annual Meeting, 2010, in St. Louis, Missouri. The full announcement and nomination procedures are given here.
