The 112th Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America took place in San Antonio, Texas January 6-9. By all accounts, the Annual Meeting was a vibrant and compelling get-together and counts as our most important academic undertaking of the year. Kudos to Professor Garrett Fagan and the hard working members of the Program for the Annual Meeting Committee, who organized over 300 papers and sessions for the event.
