The past month has been incredibly busy. I delivered four research presentations in five weeks, and have been involved in the final stages of editing a couple of upcoming publications which I’m very excited about (in Archaeologies and the Archaeological Review from Cambridge).
The abstracts from our HARN conference are available here — the event was a great success and we anticipate that it will lead to publication of some of the presenters’ papers in early 2010. Our next conference will likely take place in September in Oxford.
The students from the MA in Archaeological Illustration course at Swindon College were fantastic — it was great to interact with, and learn from, full-time, skilled image makers whose ideas and energy around visual presentation, illusion and manipulation are so intellectually productive and yet so often neglected by archaeological professionals.
This next month brings a lot of work related to my PhD and VIA. In reference to the latter, I’m always on the lookout for new additions to the VIA research showcase, so do let me know of projects that might complement VIA’s aims.
