Keynote: 2014 Arkansas Historical Association Conference

AHA_Program_20141-1I am honored to have been chosen to give the Keynote Address at the 2014 Arkansas Historical Association meeting to be held in Historic Washington, Arkansas on April 3-5.  My talk will be entitled “Archeologies of the Home Front: Excavations at Historic Washington State Park” and will talk about the usefulness of historical archeology in general, with specific examples from our recent work at Historic Washington State Park and the 2011 and 2012 Arkansas Archeological Society Summer Training Program I directed at the site.

The program lists me as being with the “Arkansas Archeological Society” instead of the “Arkansas Archeological Survey“…but, in the grand scheme of things, that’s a minor manner as the Survey works for the Society in a sense (see my blog post about that relationship here).  I will be giving the talk at the Saturday luncheon on April 4 in the WPA Gymnasium at the park.

I love the Arkansas Historical Association and thoroughly enjoyed my 6 years on their Board of Trustees (I will cycle off at the conference business meeting)…they are a great organization, run by great people…

More information about the conference can be found here…Hope to see some of you there!
