      Australasian Archaeometry Conference 2001

      Australasian Connections and New Directions

      February 5-9th 2001, University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand

      Introduction

      The Australasian Archaeometry conference meets every four years. This
      year for the first time the conference will be held outside Australia. In
      1997 this conference was attended by several hundred scholars with
      involvement in the fields of Archaeology, Anthropology, Geography,
      Conservation, Museology, Material Science and Applied Nuclear Science
      (e.g. dating, materials analysis etc).

      Some topics covered at past conferences included advances in dating
      (14C, TL, OSL, OHD), bone chemistry, technological and provenance studies,
      prospection, environmental impact and geoarchaeology.

      The conference is organized by a Local Organizing Committee which
      extends invitations to a broad range of researchers working in the
      Australasian region and beyond. The main host for 2001 will be the Centre
      for Archaeological Research and Department of Anthropology at the
      University of Auckland in collaboration with a number of other New Zealand
      research centers and academic institutions.

      The theme session for this Symposium will be Issues and Developments in
      Australasian Chronology: New Directions for the New Millennium.
