The Society for American Archaeology has released its preliminary program for the annual meeting to be held in Memphis in April. You can look at a copy here if you are interested.
While reviewing it a few days ago, I saw this symposium that I thought would be of interest to the dog enthusiasts who hang out here.

We’ll know more about content once the abstracts for these papers are released in another month or so. I’ll try to put up a link to the abstracts once that happens.
I’m presenting a paper at the meetings later in the week on some California work we’ve done that I posted about here last month. I plan on attending this dog symposium.
