Well I am going into the field on Sunday so this blog will be taking a break soon. Before that happens I might as well strut and prance around a bit and let my eleventeen readers know that (apparently) this blog was awarded the Canadian Archaeological Association‘s annual award for Public Communication (Professional/Institutional Division):
Since 1985, the Canadian Archaeological Association (CAA) has presented annual awards to acknowledge outstanding contributions in communication that further insight and appreciation of Canadian Archaeology. These awards recognise contributions by journalists, film producers, professional archaeologists and institutions and are adjudicated by a committee composed of a regional representation of CAA members.
I say “apparently” because I haven’t heard from them yet (unless they naively left a voice-mail: I check that once a year, whether anyone has left a message or not) but several people have told me it was announced at the recent annual conference in Calgary. So I’ll risk a Dewey beats Truman moment – it might be the only one I get!
