The 2015 Symposium is October 2 – 4, hosted by the University of Michigan’s Kelsey Museum of Archaeology in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Our full program is online here! This year’s varied talks feature treatment, research, teaching, and collections care. Just a few of the exciting projects we’ll hear about: Diego Rivera cartoons, Samurai armor, and decorative DNA.
We are delighted to feature presentations by professionals at all career stages, and encourage you to join us in Ann Arbor to promote fellowship, service, and the exchange of ideas. Delicious Michigan beer is, of course, also on the agenda.
