TOTL went to San Francisco

ToTL has been travelling recently, to the Society for American Archaeology annual conference, held this year in April in San Francisco. Alex Bayliss, Alasdair Whittle, Eszter Bánffy, Seren Griffiths, Arek Marciniak and Derek Hamilton all contributed to a successful ToTL-based session called ‘The short and the long of it: combining timescales’. We were joined by American colleagues Tim Kohler, Scott Ortman, Zachary Gilmore, Randall McGuire and Tim Pauketat, and their various research partners.

SAA conferences are held in big, anonymous convention centres. Here are some photos of the great city outside.
