A major NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) grant to Dr. Sophia Perdikaris of the CUNY Northern Science & Education Center, Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center has provided support for a series of visiting scholars from ther international North Atlantic Biocultural Organization (NABO) network. Visiting NABO REU scholars will lecture on a technical speciality, provide hands-on demonstrations, and present an archaeology seminar. NABO REU scholars will be in the New York City area for a week, and will work intensively with CUNY graduate students and staff on an individual basis as well as giving formal presentations. Our first NABU REU scholar is Tim Horsley, Archaeology Department of the University of Bradford, who will be providing lectures and hands-on demonstrations on "Recent Advances in Geophysics in Archaeology" in late November (schedule to be announced). Our second NABO REU scholar will be Colleen Batey, archaeology curator of the Glasgow Museum, speaking on "Artifact Curation and Documentation in Archaeology: Preserving and Using the Record." Her visit is being scheduled for Spring 2002.
