Sanford Participates at Regional Archaeological Conference

Doug Sanford, Professor in the Department of Historic Preservation, held multiple roles at the March 2014 meeting of the Middle Atlantic Archaeological Conference (MAAC) in Langhorne, Pa. Sanford was an invited participant in the workshop entitled “Boot Camp for Teaching Undergraduate Archaeology: Lessons from the Middle Atlantic,” involving over a dozen faculty members from private and public colleges and universities. For this open forum discussion, Sanford made a presentation on “Teaching Archaeology in an Interdisciplinary Environment: Anthropology, Archaeology, and Historic Preservation.” Besides accompanying four Mary Washington students, Sanford also served as a judge for the conference’s graduate student paper competition and was elected to the position of President-Elect of the MAAC for the next two years.
