Protohistoric Conference Ceramics Workshop
 
An informal ceramic workshop is tentatively scheduled in conjunction with
the upcoming "Transition from Prehistory to History in the Southwest"
Conference.
 
Because there are too many cultural areas for in-depth discussion, the
workshop will be geared toward opening communications and will focus on:
 
(1) how analysts distinguish protohistoric ceramics from prehistoric and
historic materials;
 
(2) how analysts distinguish one protohistoric type from another in a
specific area; and
 
(3) the nature of archaeological contexts in which so-called protohistoric
ceramics are being identified?
 
Don't forget to bring your sherds!
 
Please contact Mary-Ellen Walsh-Anduze at Northland Research (602) 894-0020
or (602) 894-0957 (fax) or nriarch2@aol.com by Feb. 1, 1998 if you are
interested in participating in the workshop or have any questions or
suggestions.

The ceramic workshop is part of the Transition from Prehistory to History
Conference (organized by Deni Seymour) to be held in Albuquerque
Feb. 27-March 1.

Tenatively,the workshop is scheduled for the evening on Saturday, Feb. 28.
