I’m thrilled to announce that our CCU field school students did an OUTSTANDING job presenting their papers this afternoon at the Eastern States Archaeological Federation meetings. We spent Friday evening practicing the presentations, and they were polished and ready to go for saturday afternoon. I received quite a bit of very positive feedback about the students, their presentations, and the anthropology program (my presentation highlighted both the summer field school and the current program, and our goals for the future of the program at CCU). Students also have been enjoying talking with scholars in the field (and have been buying lots of books in the book room).
We appreciate the chance to participate fully in a professional conference like this, and it was all made possible by funding through the Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts at Coastal Carolina University.
Included here is a picture of us at Williamsburg (we also took a behind-the-scenes tour of the Jamestown excavations with Dr. Bill Kelso, who directs the work there).
