The Arizona Archaeological Council (AAC) is pleased to announce the Prescott 
Archaeology Conference, to be held May 10-11, 1996, in conjunction with the 
Spring AAC Meetings.  The conference will be held at the Smoki Museum at 147 
North Arizona Street in Prescott, Arizona.

Although it remains a neglected child of Southwestern Archaeology, the 
Prescott Region has witnessed an acceleration of research in recent years, 
and much of it remains unpublished.  The purpose of this conference is to 
provide a forum for the presentation and publication of project summaries 
and synthetic studies that will help guide Prescott-area archaeology into 
what promises to be a dynamic new era of research.

Among the topics that the conference may address are:

o    The origins, fate, and regional extent of the Prescott Culture
o    Ceramic and other material-culture research
o    Chronology
o    Preceramic occupation
o    Protohistoric and historic Yavapai and early Euroamerican occupation
o    Exchange and interaction with surrounding regions
o    Settlement patterns
o    Prehistoric conflict and warfare
