SAAs – Orlando 2016

Yesterday morning I got up early and blearily watched sheets of pouring rain turn into pellets of hail, steeling myself to make the ten-minute trudge to the bus stop. Burdened with heavy bags and swathed in a flattering Ikea rain poncho, I cut quite the dashing figure on my climb up the hill:

Baba Yaga
However, nine hours later I landed in sunny Orlando. Current local temperature is a balmy 25˚C, with no precipitation on the horizon all week. Success!

The venue this year is PRETTY ridiculous.

I’m in town for the SAA meetings, to give a talk in Katy Meyers Emery’s session, titled “Buried, Bundled and Broken: Approaches to Co-Occurence of Multiple Methods, Treatments and Styles of Burials within Past Societies”. My talk will focus on some of the results from my dissertation research in Spain. If you’re a reader of the blog, or interested in primary and secondary burial during the Copper Age, feel free to drop in. Details are below:
