Scott:

Thanks. We are wrapping up to PO29/Jacana draft report by the end of the year, and I am trying not to miss any of the recent literature. I saw a reference to your volume, and Amazon told me an anticipated publication date (but these are not always very accurate).

I do not know if you are teaching any courses in Caribbean archaeology in the near future. I might be available as a guest lecturer if you have a class interested in PO29 as a site and/or PO29 as a political mess.

Thanks,

Chris

Fantastic Scott, it's a great page you have here. A belated welcome, I am glad you joined. If you encounter any difficulties in using the network (which I somehow doubt), please do not hesitate to contact me, and I hope this site will be useful for you.

Very best wishes and a warm welcome.

Hi Scott, Good to see you here. Don't forget to sign up for the Archaeology of the Caribbean Discussion Forum. I am hoping as we get new members this will be a great venue for sharing ideas. Take care and talk to you soon.
