Dear AAC Member:

The Spring Meeting of the Arizona Archaeological Council will be held April
25 and 26, 1997, at the Arizona State Museum, University of Arizona,
Tucson.  The topic for the semi-annual AAC conference concerns linear
archaeological features/sites-their study and treatment.  Dennis Gilpin,
conference organizer, indicates two general purposes are to be served by
the conference: to learn about the range of archaeological features that
fall into the general category of "linear" feature or site, and to inform
on the methodologies that may be appropriate for their study, from survey
through data recovery.  Presently, Friday afternoon will be devoted to
exploring the study of prehistoric and historic canals; on Saturday,
attention will be turned to linear features such as roads, trails,
railroads, telephone/telegraph lines, and the like.  If you are interested
in participating in this conference as a panelist/presenter, please contact
Dennis Gilpin at (520) 774-5500.  We anticipate a preliminary agenda for
the meetings will be sent out the first week of April.

I would also like to remind everyone that the deadline for contributions to
the spring (April) issue of the AAC Newsletter is Friday, March 28, 1997.
Information on events, work or field school opportunities, current or
upcoming projects, letters to the newsletter, new publications, and general
items pertinent to Arizona archaeology are all welcomed.  Items prepared in
Wordperfect 5.1, 6.0 or 6.1 sent on disk or as attached e-mail documents
will be most appreciated.  The mailing addresses and Fax number are:
