  1. Greetings! Thanks for this informative summary post re mort/bioarch at the recent SAAs, which I unfortunately had to miss (being based in Australia). I only now stumbled accross your blog, but I like what I’ve read. One question: Did any of the presentations in our field focus on Southeast or East Asian sites? I currently work in Vietnam, and am hoping to organize such a session for either the Nashville or Honolulu conferences, so I don’t want to miss anyone :) For now, keep up the good work! If you wish, I’d appreciate your adding my blog to your roll (and I’ll do the same). It’s antiquities trade/looting focused, but I’m working on being more regular in updating it (grad student, too!).
