Six UE Archaeology Alumni Present at AIA Conference

Annually the Archaeological Institute of America hosts the biggest conference of Classical archaeologists in North America. Archaeologists from around the world attend. Presenting a paper, poster or workshop there is a true honor. This year the AIA conference was in Philadelphia during the first week in January and no fewer than six alumni participated. Congratulations to the following:

Danielle Riebe (above) (University of Illinois at Chicago), author of the poster “Signatures in Ceramics: Identifying Prehistoric Interaction through Ceramics on the Great Hungarian Plain”
