ASI at the Society for Historical Archaeology Conference

The Annual Conference for the Society of Historical Archaeology is taking place in St Charles, Missouri on January 9-12, 2019 and ASI staff are presenting on two important subjects.

Dr. Andrew Riddle and Dr. Katherine Hull are co-presenting a paper titled  Sharing the CRM Wealth: Creating a Searchable Archaeological Database with GIS, where they continue their exploration of the role that Cultural Resource Management companies can have in facilitating data sharing within our discipline.

Dr. Katherine Hull is also presenting a paper related to her PhD work on the archaeology of the Great Irish Famine  Forget Me Not: Charles Orser’s Unearthing of Hidden Ireland. This paper explores the legacy of the great Charles Orser in relation to his historical archaeological work in Ireland, which helped to tell the stories of lower class Irish people in the nineteenth century, as well as shedding light onto local pottery production.
