Doug Sanford Presents Conference Paper

Sanford_Douglas_141Douglas Sanford, professor of historic preservation, presented a paper entitled “Archaeological Collections Management at a Small Academic Institution” at the 2013 Middle Atlantic Archaeological Conference in Virginia Beach, Va. Sanford’s paper formed part of the special session that he organized and chaired, “Archaeological Collections: Management, Research, and Philosophical Issues” that addressed the professional methods and ethical legacies of such collections from the viewpoints of archaeologists who work in academic, government, and house museum realms. Both the paper and the session derived from an individual studies and group research-based class on archaeological collections management offered by Sanford in the fall 2012 semester. Sanford also served as a judge for the conference’s undergraduate student paper competition.
