I have finally recovered from the fantastic weekend long conference of the British Association of Biological Anthropologist and Osteoarchaeologists (BABAO) annual conference held this year at Bournemouth University. The talks every year get better as do the posters (I remember when you cut and pasted with real glue on A3 paper!). Slightly disappointed by the 12 min restriction on talks, as many would have warranted a deeper discussion. The AGM agreed to conversion to charity status and the chance to vote online whether to fund some places to attend the conferences. We will have a new chair person in Piers Mitchell as Chris Knusel has served his term.
It was lovely to see old friends and familiar faces, catch up on the gossip! I was very taken with the stick of rock we got given with BABAO written in it! shame I don’t like rock, but Steve was appreciative when I brought it home.
We took a trip to the beach, which was surprisingly nice, well you can’t go to the seaside and not see the sea.
I’m looking forward to the next conference next year in York, my home stomping ground.
