The Archaeology of First Encounters and Early Settlements

The 2019 meeting of the Southeastern Conference on Historic Sites Archaeology (SECHSA) will be held August 9-10, 2019 on the campus of Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, North Carolina.

The conference theme, “The Archaeology of First Encounters and Early Settlements”, examines early settlement and initial interactions and exchanges of people of different cultures in the Southeastern US. However, presentations on all forms of current research in historical archaeology are welcome.  The deadline for paper/poster abstracts is July 12, 2019.

Registration for the two-day conference is $30 with Friday’s lunch included. You can pre-register online or you can pay at the door. However, pre-registration is strongly encouraged as it helps up with planning.

Please note that hotels in the Asheville area are expensive in August. Make your reservation at the conference hotel with a reduced rate before July 15.
