SHA 2011 – January 5-9

The Society for Historical Archaeology is having their annual meeting in Austin this year and it’s hard to believe that I’m missing them, even though I don’t really do historical archaeology.  It’s not my speciality, though I’m very interested in archaeology in the contemporary setting and the SHAs can be a particularly fun and forward-looking meeting. Or so it seems from the preliminary program.

So, as I did with the SAA last year, I give you my picks for not-to-be-missed sessions at the SHA. Please go to them and tell me how they were!
