Dr. Elizabeth Moore, curator of archaeology, was one of approximately 3000 archaeologists at the 83rd Annual Meetings of the Society for American Archaeology in Washington, D.C. last week. During the meetings, Dr. Moore gave two presentations regarding her research at VMNH as part of an invited symposium sponsored by the Middle Atlantic Archaeology Conference.

Dr. Moore's first presentation was a co-authored poster in a session titled "Fighting the Anti-Science Hysteria Through Public Archaeology". The second was a paper titled "Fishing at the Beach: the Great Neck site and an Examination of Subsistence Strategies on the Chesapeake Bay".
