Society for American Archaeology 2015

Last week, director Meredith Morris-Babb and our office manager Cindy Laukert traveled to San Francisco to take part in the Society for American Archeology’s 80th annual meeting!

We displayed a ton of archaeology and anthropology books at our booth. If you want to see at all of the books we displayed, we’ve created a virtual booth. You can even take advantage of the conference discount that we’ve extended for a full month by applying discount code SAA15 at checkout!

UPF Booth at SAAWe were excited to introduce some of our newest titles to everyone at the meeting, including Teresa Moyer’s Ancestors of Worthy Life, Christopher N. Matthews and Allison Manfra McGovern’s The Archaeology of Race in the Northeast, Daniel O. Sayers’s A Desolate Place for a Defiant Peopleand Brian G. Redmond and Robert A. Genheimer’s Building the Past.

There was also great excitement for this year’s winner of the SAA Book Award in the Scholarly category: Steven A. Wernke’s Negotiated Settlements!

Everyone loved Brett Houk’s Ancient Maya Cities of the Eastern Lowlands, snagging all of our copies by the morning of just the second conference day! Brett stopped by the booth just in time for us to snap a picture of him with the last copy of his book before it sold out.

William B. Lees, the co-author with Frederick P. Gaske of another recent title, Recalling Deeds Immortal, also stopped by to see us!
