We were very disappointed that we had to cancel our 12th Biennial Project Archaeology Coordinators Conference because of Hurricane Sandy, but we have already rescheduled the conference for October 14 – 18, 2013.  It will be at the National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) in Shepardstown, WV, which is marvelous venue for collaborative work and networking.  Mark your calendars now and plan to attend next year.

A small group of Project Archaeology coordinators made it to Washington, DC and we were able to work on a few of the conference tasks after the big storm had moved out of the region.  Lynn Alex (Iowa), Gwynn Henderson (Kentucky), Brooke Brown (Oregon), and Maureen Malloy (Chesapeake) met with me at the Society for American Archaeology (SAA) offices in downtown Washington for a couple of days.  We reviewed the new Web site

and discussed changes and additions for our state program pages. Miraculously, we managed to meet with education staff at the National Museum of the American Indian at our appointed time on October 31st where we shared information about our respective educational programs and discussed possible future projects.  Through a brief workshop session we examined our new Investigating Food and Culture curriculum guide for sixth grade world history students.
