Nevada Anthropological Conference

May 9-11, 2014

Carson Valley Inn, Minden, Nevada

In Honor of Nevada’s 150th Year of Statehood

The 11th Annual Meeting of the Nevada Rock Art Foundation was held in conjunction with the 43rd Annual Meeting of the Nevada Archaeological Association. The first joint meeting of the two organizations, the Nevada Anthropological Conference, was well received by NRAF members who attended the Conference, who said they very much liked the diversity of papers and larger number of attendees.
The conference ran for two days, with workshops on Friday morning, a poster session Friday afternoon, and sessions on Friday afternoon and all day Saturday. Topics covered a wide range of archaeological interests, with a total of 23 presentations over the two days, including Dr Pat Barker’s keynote lecture on the sometimes strained relationship between traditional archaeology and rock art studies. The meeting provided a relaxed context for students, professional archaeologists and avocationalists to present their research findings and share ideas.
The 2015 Annual Meeting is in the planning stage; dates, venue, and a call for papers will be announced in the New Year.
