THE ARCHAEOLOGIST, Vol. 1, January, 2009 Issued!

President's Message:

 Dear Chapter members: Priscilla and I hope you had a wonderful Holiday season and we wish you a Happy New Year. I look forward to working with the Chapter. Since December's meeting was cancelled, the program on Southwestern Petroglyphs is rescheduled for January. 

Since we have several new members who are unfamiliar with our region's pre-historic periods and point identification I hope to use our February and March meetings to address these issues. 

I will be asking members who are familiar with these topics and who have artifacts available to assist in preparing a type set. This will allow new members to examine points representing each type rather than just looking at a picture of it. Once point typology is completed, I also hope to cover other stone tools. I believe this is an important goal because our chapter is returning to the field. We are also planning the NYS Association meeting which we will host in 2010. I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.

David Johnson, President. 


Newsletter publisher and Treasurer Ray Decker will be undergoing back surgery January 20th and will not be in attendance at the regular meeting.  Best wishes for Ray's speedy recovery!
