And now for our Spring Update!
- Our decision to expand the membership of HARN beyond graduate and postgraduate students has led to some exciting new members joining. From professors to professional archaeologists to highly motivated undergraduates, we are looking forward to new topics, conversations and contributions. Check out the updated “Members” section for more information.
- Look for the May issue of the Bulletin for History of Archaeology. This issue features entirely HARN members’ work! More details to come…
- Have a look at our new Publications page under the members’ section of the website. This is a place to publish regular updates about history of archaeology-themed published works by our members. We’ll try to keep it current, but please feel free, if you are a HARN member, to post your own references, and keep us all in the loop!
- SAA and TAG Brown are coming up, and the history of archaeology and HARN members are featured at both.
