In case you didn’t know, I recently became the Associate Editor for Bioarchaeology for the Society for Archaeological Sciences. My first article was in the Fall 2012 Bulletin, which is now available in a free digital format. You can get the PDF version of the bulletin here: Fall 2012 SAS Bulletin. My first article was a discussion of some innovative uses of bioarchaeology that I’ve noticed in journal articles over the past year. These include the use of dental plaque to determine what individuals were eating, stable isotope analysis to determine sex, and the better placement of bioarchaeology within the archaeological context as a whole.
If you have any announcements, conferences, special lectures, books or papers that you would like to have mentioned or reviewed for the article, just let me know! The bulletin is not just another forum for my perspective and ramblings, it is a place for you to learn about what is going on in the archaeological sciences. Feel free to contact me with anything you feel may be pertinent to the article and should be included.
