WAC Party At The SAA

At the recent SAA conference in Austin, Texas, a WAC party was hosted by Springer, celebrating the launch of WAC's journal, Archaeologies, with Springer. As you can see from the photos, a good time was had by all. We would like to take this opportunity to take Springer for their support, not only in terms of the party, and the journal, but also through the book series we have with them, and more generally, as well.

In addition, WAC had a booth at the SAA, and on Friday, 27th April, we held a meeting of the Executive members who were attending the SAA conference. We thank the SAA for providing this venue. The next meeting of the WAC Executive will be held at the WAC Inter-Congress, in Catamarca, Argentina, 3rd to 7th July, 2007.
