From Here to Eternity: Collaborative Case Studies in American
Archaeology and Conservation
AIC Annual Meeting Pre-Session
June 8, 1999

The American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic
Works (AIC) is pleased to announce it will conduct a one-day
pre-session on Tuesday, June 8, 1999.  The session is entitled "From
Here to Eternity: Collaborative Case Studies in American Archaeology
and Conservation" and is being sponsored by the Research and
Technical Studies Specialty Group of the AIC.  The session will be
held during the AIC 27th Annual Meeting at the Adams Mark Hotel in
St. Louis, Missouri and attendance is encouraged for both AIC
members and non- members in the archaeological community.

The all day session will focus on approaches that have proven
effective in building the relationship between archaeologists and
conservation professionals.  Presentations will include examples
from across the country representing a variety of working
situations, sites, and archaeological conditions.  The session costs
will be $90 for AIC members and $150 for non- members.

The annual meeting will be held June 7-13, 1999.  The general
session will focus on two topics: "The Costs of Conserving Our
Cultural Heritage: Can We Afford It?" and "Used or Misused: The
Responsible Preservation of Functional Cultural Objects Still In
Use." Sessions will be conducted by AIC specialty groups
(Architecture, Books and Paper, Objects, Electronic Media,
Paintings, Photographic Materials, Research and Technical Studies,
Textiles, Wooden Artifacts, and Conservators in Private Practice)
the balance of the week. Other meeting offerings include: workshops
and poster sessions, an exhibit hall featuring conservation
suppliers June 10-12, and tours and workshops held at museums and
sites throughout the St. Louis metro area. For program and
registration materials for the pre-session and/or annual meeting,
