Dear OAC Member,
The Fall OAC meeting is October 19th at Blacklick Metro Park again. Once again, we need presentations for the program. Topic of papers is open. I need 5-8 more presentations. I would encourage presentations by any students or interns you may have working on projects with or for you. I am also interested in seeing presentations about CRM projects in the state.
I would also like to encourage everyone to submit contributions to the Current Archaeology section and to send in your contributions for the Journal of Ohio Archaeology. These are great and underutilized tools for staying up-to-date on current happenings in Ohio (and surrounding areas) archaeology.Presentation are in 20 minute slots.
