UPDATE from S. Dwight Kirkland, Program Planner, dated June 3rd: There seems to be a general lack of interest in this year’s Symposium on Southeastern Coastal Plain Archaeology to be held on August 23, at South Georgia State College in Douglas. To date I have received only two titles committed to the program. This will be my last call for papers. If you would like to present a paper, please send me a title, a short abstract (one paragraph), and a couple of sentences to introduce you to the audience. The abstract need not be complicated, just a simple summary of what you plan to talk about. If enough papers haven’t been committed to make a program by the first of August, I’ll cancel this year’s meeting.
