Join the Society for California Archaeology as we collaborate with our colleagues from the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia, (INAH) Centro INAH Baja California.  The SCA’s newly formed INAH Collaboration Committee has been working to organize the annual Southern Data Sharing meeting, entitled ‘Las Californias’, at the Coral and Marina Hotel in Ensenada, Baja California, from October 19th-21st

Our collaboration on Las Californias represents a genuine effort in diplomacy between INAH and the SCA and the next step in a stronger and more closely linked partnership.  We’re gathering to share information on new discoveries, methods, and techniques in the field, to promote heritage conservation in California and Baja California, to foster professional development in our field, and more.  There will be an organized symposium and a poster session held at the Muesó Historico Regional de Ensenada on Saturday morning.  This meeting will be in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere—perfect for students and young professionals to practice presenting as well as an opportunity to meet and talk with professional archaeologists from INAH and the SCA in a fun and casual setting. Presenters are encouraged but not required to be current SCA members.

We are limited to 56 guest rooms at the hotel. Please register ASAP if you want to stay at Coral Y Marina hotel. Be sure to specify the SCA Room Block to receive a discount*).
