Kristin and I presented our session at the World Archaeological Congress today in Palestine and it went very well! We started with a powerpoint presentation outlining our project. We then opened the floor up to questions and we steered the dialogue via specific conversation topics that we had prepared. In all, our session had a lot of participation and lasted over an hour!
I feel like the entire room (but especially us) learned a lot. We also met and had lunch with about a dozen Palestinian archaeology students, as well as creating connections with their professors. It was an amazingly beneficial day–and–Aaron had a day off from excavation and he came and watched our presentation!
