David Morgan, NCPTT archeology and collections chief, presented a paper at the Society of American Archeologists (SAA) annual meeting on burials excavated from Jackson Barracks in New Orleans, with emphasis on issues of cultural affiliation. Morgan also co-chaired the Archaeological Preservation Technology Research Consortium meeting held in advance of the SAA meeting.
Two new work tasks were identified for the consortium. The first is to convene a policy/theory level symposium at the 2007 SAA meeting in Texas. The second is to produce a set of standards and protocols for terrestrial geophysical prospection techniques.
