If I’m to believe the internet, most of Americans associate the decreasing temperatures and fiery leaves of autumn with one thing — pumpkin spice lattes. I (and hopefully you too!) have something else in mind… SEAC, of course!
The Southeastern Archaeological Conference convenes in Baton Rouge November 7-11, and if past years are any indication, the mix of cutting edge scholarship, provocative theoretical inquiry, and wicked dance moves will not fail to impress.
This year, a group of students from UM have (insanely) opted to drive from Ann Arbor to Louisiana, minimally a distance of 1100 miles. We’ve added a day on either end of the meeting to allow us to visit some archaeological sites along the way. So my question for you is: if you had two days to drive through the mid-south, what sites would you go see? At the moment, we’re considering Poverty Point and Moundville (one on the way there and one on the way back), but that’s not set in stone, and we’re willing to make time to include some more must-see locations.
Any advice would be heartily appreciated!
