Today the #DIG2019 #conference kicks off at #SFU Developing International Geoarchaeology (DIG) is the title of a series of very successful international conferences. The goal of DIG is to bring together a wide variety of international researchers, practitioners and students in this diverse and interdisciplinary field to facilitate discussion, stimulate research, and promote international scholarship in #geoarchaeology-We have the pleasure to announce that the Keynote Speaker of DIG2019 is Professor Charly French. Charles Andrew Ivey French is Professor in Geoarchaeology and the Director of the McBurney Laboratory for Geoarchaeology at Department of Archaeology, University of Cambridge, UK. Paper and Poster Prizes. One student paper and one student poster will be selected and awarded the prize for best DIG 2019 submissions. As is traditional for DIG, there will be a petrographic thin section #micromorphology workshop at the end of the conference. This is an informal workshop that will take place in the Petrography Teaching Lab of the Department of Earth Sciences, equipped with twenty Nikon Eclipse microscopes. The Geoarchaeology Lab Thermo-Nicolet iN10 MX FTIR image microscope will be also available. A selection of petrographic reference slides and sediment thin sections from archaeological sites around the world will be available to look at. As usual delegates are encouraged to bring their own slides for discussion. British Columbia has a rich archaeological heritage, from #prehistory through the colonial period. As part of the conference there will be the opportunity to take part in a field trip to explore parts of what is arguably one of the most spectacular landscape in the world and home of ancient populations, first nations and “Transformers”. We will leave SFU in the morning and travel north on the Sea-to-Sky highway to Squamish. Guided by Dr Rudy Reimer/Yumks we will stop at large scale geological features and #pictographs to learn about a narrative regarding an ancient and epic battle between a #Squamish Nation warrior and a two headed serpent. #fb #twitter #sfugram #sfuarchaeology
